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!
