He really had no time to prepare the soil or do really anything right when it comes to seeding a garden. However, the season was coming to an end and if he didn't scatter those seeds, we would have to wait another year. I'm so glad he did.
I came home from work yesterday and Michael said, "You better check the camera. I have a little surprise for you". And to my delight, Michael had captured a beautiful Junonia coenia . That's right a Buckeye Butterfly in the family Nymphalidae! Isn't she lovely!
There are probably 10 different types of wild flowers popping up in our little butterfly garden and each day we go out to see if any of the new varieties have bloomed. A few shots from this morning!
And I will leave you with a close up of the buckeye butterfly. Notice her lower left hand wings. It appears that she has had a few rough encounters.
