My butterfly garden is a small affair. And, as it is transitioning from spring to summer it is also a ragged affair. The spring plants, which do well in the cool are looking weedy and brown. The dill is going to seed. And if I don’t give it constant attention, it threatens to be overwhelmed with grass.

The other day I was about to get that seedy dill out of my garden and I noticed something on it. A closer look revealed that it was the chrysalis of a Black Swallowtail butterfly. So, the weedy seedy dill remains. And I wait and watch. I am excited.

The summer plants will have to wait.
