BLACK SWALLOWTAIL ON RED PENTA . . .Still torrential downpours in the afternoons and sometimes into the night. Lawn did dry out enough yesterday to get it mowed! An hour later the rains came! Oh well! Bright and sunny this morning and the butterflies were out and about in the new unfinished butterfly garden. Just about a third of the plants that will be there when it is finished but the flying flowers don't seem to mind.

Had a very enjoyable and informative time yesterday at the Advanced Butterfly Gardening class. Learned a lot! Can't wait for the next one.

Raining buckets right now, along with thunder, no lightning though, yet!

Thanks for looking and God bless,
PattiSmile

A very accomplished set of the black swallowtail, with V 1 deserving of it's slot but I feel V 3 could be a close contender.
