I planted Tithonia, aka Mexican sunflower, for the first time this year in the garden. It is an absolute butterfly magnet. Everyday a dozen or more swallowtails (Tiger & Spicebush) visit to feed from morning to dusk. At one point this morning I counted 15 of them. Here are a couple of pics. Enjoy!

As does the entire USWNT! Awesome game today- job well done!!!

Thank you! I’ll do!

I must check this out

I finished building this herb spiral bed today. Will be planting it over the next couple weeks. It is right outside the back door- so will be very handy for fresh herbs once I get them planted and established.

See the updated photos just posted.

NO NO NO... he was so young,,,, this is sad news

This song has popped up several times the past few days in my various streams. No particular reason I suppose, but those of us of a certain age all have our lists of friends departed.
