Now for this weeks theme:


You can all sing along with me:

On the first day of summer my true love gave to me....

6 Tons of gravel
5 Yards of pine mulch
4 Flats of flowers
3 blisters on my hand
2 loads of dirt

and

1 aching back

But here is just one of the many rewards from the last few days:




And also this:


The lily was not in the ground 5 minutes and this butterfly came over for a little snack.

hey thanks for stopping by! i'm so jealous of your butterfly picture... how'd you catch him posing like that?

Jessica said...

I just sat there and waited, taking pictures, I actually had to nudge him a little bit to get him to pose better...patience...
In New Zealand I ran into a butterfly photographer who said he would net the butterflies and then put them in a little cooler to slow them down, then release to get them to open there wings slowly, and stay put until they warmed up...

3 Blisters? That's a crappy gift. You have to talk to him about that.

That's a pretty cool butterfly. I wish a black and white one would lands in my garden.
