The Buffer Strip

31 Jul

The buffer strip is growing and the alfalfa and clover are blooming.

It needs made into hay again.  My nephew was going to mow the other day, but it was drizzly misting out, and there’s an unsettled forecast for the week.  You need dry weather for good hay, so he hasn’t mowed it yet.

That’s okay.  Until it gets mowed, there’s lots of critters enjoying the flowers.

I finally found a cooperative tiger swallowtail!

I’m so excited.  They are my most favorite butterfly.
