May 15/Nature Notes

This week nature has been glorious

Gardens  and roadsides are filling in with a rainbow of colours. Largest square: Butterfly on dandelion - The nectar must be delicious!

Moving clockwise: weeping crabapple (unknown variety as it was given to me as a seedling); seed head of pasque flower (Pulsatilla patens); chocolate vine (Akebia quinata); bugleweed (Ajuga reptans) and flowering onion (Alium hollandicum)

I've only been lucky enough to find one of these butterflies and my attempt to photo the lady wasn't nearly as good as yours. I love seeing the wildflowers out. Nice collage.

Beautiful nature collage. I can't figure out why I'm not seeing more butterflies yet. Yours is a beauty.

Beautiful collage! This time of the year is amazing "up North" (as we snowbirds say)... I can only hope I will see a little of leftover spring when we get back.

You captured this week perfectly. I get confused over the comma and question mark butterflies unless I can get a really good look...Have a wonderfully nature filled week EG.. Michelle
