In My Garden

If you break off a leaf you will smell
the delectable scent of lemon mint.

I plant red petunias
every year, without fail.

Pansies that wilted
during a recent hot spell
slowly reviving

I took these two pictures when we were out bicycling.

As we cycled past the clover in the ditch,
a butterfly's bright sunrise colours
immediately caught my attention.

Later, I found out that this butterfly
is a Milbert's Tortoiseshell.

I'm glad I stopped...so excited to be able
to add another Tortoiseshell
to my list of butterfly sightings.

Clouded Sulphur
These pretty yellow butterflies are everywhere.
