The stage is set. A symphony of birds and frogs fills the garden with song.
Now we watch for the flying ballet of butterflies and hummingbirds to begin their annual performance.
This lone Zebra Swallowtail visited the Lantana yesterday morning as I watered the garden.
We’ve spotted her a few times over the last few days, and I was happy to find her close enough to share photos with you.
Our butterflies frequently visit Lantana, Hibiscus, and the Butterfly Tree ready to bloom near the ravine.
Our Joe Pye Weed opened its first blossom yesterday, and we have several patches of Salvia in bloom.
July and August find our garden full of butterflies.
Let the show begin! The audience is filled with anticipation. . .
