Black Swallowtail

Black Swallowtail on the lilac bushes.

What a great day in the garden. Had a couple of visitors stop by. First, was a toad. I never had a toad in the garden before and I am happy to see him. I believe they eat slugs.

The other visitor was the third type of butterfly to feed on the lilacs this week and it was a beauty — a Black Swallowtail.

Since reading that this year is going to be a spectacular one for spotting butterflies, I decided that all my annuals should draw butterflies. Today I planted flats of zinnias, cosmos, snapdragons and ageratum.

I’m tired, in need of a shower…but so happy.
