  1. Beautiful! Summer looks good through your camera lens!

      Only because it doesn’t capture how friggin’ hot it is outside! 😀

  2. Mouthwatering pics. I felt I could almost reach out and touch the Sunflower. Your butterflies are so pretty.

      I’m grateful that the sunflowers are doing okay and the butterflies are interested in our backyard now! I have enjoyed their visits!

  3. Beautiful flowers and minibeasts! That Pearl Crescent butterfly is just lovely – wings like leadlight windows.

    I’m sitting here shivering and looking at your beautiful sunflowers and imagining some in my garden this summer!

      It does look like a leadlight, doesn’t it?! Well, call me crazy, but I’d rather be shivering sometimes … You can always put more clothes on! I’m going to try to make a trip to the mountains this summer to get away from the heat and enjoy some fifty degree weather for awhile! 🙂

  4. You’ve got a great garden and some wonderful friends in it. Hope you’ll let CTG come visit sometime.
