I've seen Mourning Cloaks hanging around the beginning of the path into our back woods for the past two days. We have a compost pile on the side of the path, so when I've gone out to dump, there have been one or two that I startled up from the ground or were chasing each other. I think they are one of the most beautiful butterflies.
I also have Eastern Yellow Tiger Swallowtails fluttering around high up in the trees nearly constantly, and a hummingbird was visiting my salvia today. My garden is coming together and the critters are finding it. I planted a wild black cherry sapling that my brother dug up for me from my mom's property. I hope it survives. Hope everyone else is having a great season.
