I love this time of year. The garden is completely filled in from the Sring planting, with tall Sunflowers ready to open. Butterflies and bees are making their rounds to all the opened blooms.
Who wouldn't be cheered by receiving a card with a delicious Jasmine Green tea tucked in the rim of a teapot depicting sunflowers and butterflies, especially when the inside reads: "You make my world brighter!"
I caught this Swallowtail hopping across the Mums, stopping long enough to pose for a photo.
What the caterpillar calls the end of the world, the Master calls a butterfly. ~Richard Bach
