Mr. Nature here–and I can’t let this year go by without paying homage to the tiger swallowtail butterfly, one of my favorite creations by God’s mind and hands.
These tigers are holding a convention on a stand of buttonbush. I’ve never seen so many in one place. Around here, you just see one now and then, alone. But then we don’t have any buttonbush to attract them.
Mrs. Nature is thinking next year’s garden might be better as a butterfly garden–milkweed for the monarchs, and assorted wildflowers for the rest. I’m all for it. Maybe this’ll be my chance finally to see a hummingbird.
