I have something I want to share with y'all! (yes, the ubiquitous and useful phrase has made its way into my daily vocab. I surrender.) You know I'm a nature lover, especially flowers, birds and bees. Well, a friend hipped me to a site called iNaturalist.org where you can post observations and learn all about the species you find! And you can follow other people's observations, ask for IDs on things you're not familiar with. It's so cool. Check it out - and follow me on iNaturalist.org!
See this tree? Looks like an ordinary tree, right?
And I met these lovelies from my backyard last week. Eastern Tiger Swallowtail and Spicebush Swallowtail, meet my readers. Readers, meet these gorgeous Swallowtails. That's my Lantana they're enjoying. I have future plans for a dedicated butterfly garden. Welcome, friends!
