Someone told the mom earlier this week her coneflowers were like a Disney movie. That made the mom feel really good, especially knowing she has a "black thumb" and can kill plants quickly and in unique ways, like when she sprayed plants with "Deep Woods Off" to get rid of caterpillars only to watch all the plants die within 4 days.
There are 10 yellow swallowtails in this photo.
Biggify to see them all!
There's a bumble bee next to the swallowtail and a grasshopper at the top of the photo.
Other butterflies visit too, like the small yellow one in the upper right corner.
We'll see if we can't get photos of them too.
A photo of a male black swallowtail is something to strive for.
Maybe next week??
