Today's weather is anything but perfect. It is hot, humid and cloudy. We have storms predicted for our area with a 30% chance. Most likely we will get hit with something with the way the sky looks and with the fact that walking out side is like trying to breath underwater. The butterflies sure seem to not mind. I'm amazed at how weather that seems to make us wilt will bring these gorgeous creatures out in droves. The coneflowers are blooming and have turned one flower bed into a coneflower bed, choking most everything else out. Some serious control will have to implemented next season if I want any other flowers to flourish. I couldn't resist sharing these photos of the Eastern Tiger Swallowtail and the Red Admiral. I know I've posted about each before, but these beauties were just to gorgeous to not share.
