This is another from today’s walk. I go past a very cool house on occasion and have never thought to look it up. Turns out it’s an historical home (you can read about it here). I had no idea! It’s now used for the Farrington Historical Foundation and the Junior League of San Jose.

I see so few butterflies these days. When I was a child it seemed they were everywhere. If and when we ever manage to get plants into our own yard (yes, it’s pathetic to think that our yard is a mess with very few flowers!) I hope to plant some plants that bees and butterflies love. This swallowtail appeared on my walk today and while I couldn’t get terribly close, I was happy to get an image at all, as he/she really didn’t want to pose!
