look what I saw.

Good morning.
We have 3 huge clumps of Joe-pye Weed in the yard. The large kind of fuzzy looking flower heads attract dozens of bees. Itty-bitty ones to Bumbles.
But I haven't seen many of these. A Monarch.
I even leave a large group of milkweed growing over by the creek to help attract them, but there seems to be fewer each year, so I was happy to see this one.
Anyway, it's been a nice weekend so far, and I'll tell you more later.

  1. Why do you attack the butterflies? ;-)

    I know, bad me to tease, haha.
    Hope you guys are enjoying the long weekend!
