About a week ago the fennel plant in my herb garden was covered with caterpillars. Today I went outside and one of the Giant Swallowtails was flying around this lantana plant. Do you see it?

There it is . . . . Lovely!

And then I went out again and found this one coming in for a landing. I had no idea that lantana was such a butterfly magnet!

My Nest

Well, I guess every new blog has to start somewhere. I have been wanting to do this for some time, but thought it best to complete my "to do" list first. On second thought, maybe I could post my projects and that would encourage me to get them done. Good idea! So, I'll start with showing you "my nest" and a few of my favorite things.
