the butterflies have been all a-flutter around me while i've worked on my expansion project the last two days.
i put some zinnias in the ground because i saw some while mom and i were in lake wales. they caught my eye because the butterflies seemed to be very familiar with them. i know... as if everyone doesn't know that zinnias are extremely common. yawn! well, not for me. i've actually never had them in my garden... i'm not sure why. but all of a sudden i had to have them.
i barely had them in the ground and this white peacock began sipping.
this little bee flew into the picture for its very own photo op ... i think its see-through wings are especially adorable.
again... even while i was putting one of these in the ground this white peacock and a cloudless sulphur weren't the least bit shy. who could ask for better than the butterflies to notice freshly planted flowers and make themselves right at home?
