|Butterflies in the echinacea|
Monday, August 8, 2011
Spent yesterday in the garden; weeding, cutting back and watching the butterflies flutter about. The echinacea is a big favourite and I was fascinated to see the brownish butterfly on the lower right had lost part of his wing which didn't seem to slow him down at all. The deer have been busy eating the hostas, John saw bear scat at the compost pile [that's a little close thank you very much] and I saw a lynx yesterday morning crossing the road in front of the house. Still can't quite believe I saw it. What a beautiful animal, but what is it doing in the village?
