I just returned from a great garden in Greenfield that was abundant with plants….and butterflies. There were a half a dozen at a time around the lilacs and azaleas. Here is an image of a swallowtail on a lilac for you to enjoy.
Another butterfly came visiting this afternoon. I spent some time looking it up and believe it to be the American Painted Lady butterfly. It was fast and flighty and seem to be in a great hurry to move along.
