My walk the other day was filled with lots of butterflies!

The only monarch picture because they are rudely uncooperative, unlike the swallowtails.

And a couple of Japanese beetles.

I was waiting for the monarch to open its wings.

When it did, it was to fly away.

Stitch and Purl and doing well.  Purl is still my sweet little girl.  I think I was successful in getting her to like me.

Poor Maybeline does not tolerate the heat well, and it does nasty things to her fleece.


My handsome dog.


Here’s another of the Queen Anne’s lace after the storm.

I forgot to add these to yesterday’s post.  I think Bob got caught out in the storm.

Poor baby.  I hope he didn’t get hit by any of that hail.

Xerxes is so handsome!


I think Freddie has adjusted to the move into the paddock with his half-brother (Xerxes) quite well.


A swallowtail from when I was doing chores the other day.

Pluto is still a sweet boy.


He’s also still really short.  He certainly inherited every drop of mini-goat from both sides.
