Mermaids plus dish soap equal hours of fun in shade.
This butterfly bush is so incredibly fragrant I could swoon! I am hoping to save seeds to start more bushes in the spring. Last fall I wasn't thinking far enough ahead, but this year I am.
Lavender and Thyme looking good.
Love to run my fingers through these on the way out the door.
Butterflies - this one in the lavender, but more are in the
butterfly bush. Sometimes 20 at a time!
Today at Miss B's Pre-K orientation there was a huge billboard in the cafeteria covered with the loveliest butterfly fabric. Actually two fabrics, each of which I had made dresses with as a teenager! For a long while butterflies were a power animal of sorts for me. Maybe power animal isn't quite the right phrase, but I had/have quite an affinity for them. I saw this familiar fabric as a very good omen. Which is good, it may be harder than I anticipated not to get teary over my little one heading off to school.
This article today in the NYTimes has me wanting to give figs a go. Anyone with experience overwintering them in a cold climate? We're zone 5.
I hope your day is a pleasantly fragrant one.
