Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

Fritillaries and bumble bees. No monarchs or honey bees to be seen.

We only see a few bumblebees now. They are more common in the spring around here. right now the most common butterfly is the swallowtail. They are such majestic examples. - Margy

Tom, It is a butterfly weed. When I was young my mom had one but she dug up hers from the side of the road.

Wow, wow, wow, absolutely gorgeous. Our butterfly weed is just about to bloom. I don't expect quite so many butterflies, but you never know!

What a spectacular ballet of blooms and butterflies, Marcia! Bravo to the beautiful pollinators!! I must share your photos with my husband. He is the family butterfly expert and will just love them.
