Yesterday, my friend Mary Jane came over for zucchini muffins—I’ll be posting a recipe next week—and iced tea. As she was leaving, we spotted this swallowtail butterfly, and we both were transfixed by its beauty. However, I was not so transfixed that I didn’t rush to get my camera and take some shots of this ethereal creature. It was almost like having a fairy visit my pansies.
Yet another gift of summer.
