We had this beautiful swallowtail visit us the other day.
It stayed for two days, hanging out on our back deck, before flying away.
"Happiness is a butterfly, which when pursued, is always just beyond
your grasp, but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon
you." -Nathaniel Hawthorne
The days have been mild. The nights are cool. I canned eight jars of rhubarb sauce last night. Tomorrow happens to be my birthday. Almost officially summer.
