I was delighted to see butterflies on Azaleas, Roses and Bath's Pinks today.
A dark Swallowtail was here just a moment ago!
They showed up in twos and threes, Tigers and Darks and an
occasional Yellow Sulphur. Only Tigers posed.
This butterfly stopped to rest on a pollen dusted camellia bush.
Notice dark Sweetshrub blooms against the azaleas.
Hot dry weather is already drying up the first azaleas to open. Mr. Butterfly still found nectar.
I bought these white as Delaware White Azaleas. Not.
They're pretty, though.
First open on George L. Tabor.
Yellow leaves from drought.
Judge Solomon, here for fifty years.
My fav of the Indicas.
