I am SOOOO ready for the Hollies to start blooming at my daughter's house. The Red Admirals LOVE them.

Congrats on your siting, Lila!

We have a few of those flying around now! Plus a GF that I had raised and released. I put out an old banana today. I was surprised the RA's weren't on the Rue blooms, but I checked them and they don't look fresh at all. Barely anything blooming otherwise.
