My babies have all grown up!

Post  Retired Member 1 on 7/12/2010, 11:45 am

I went outside a little while ago to find a dozen or so black swallowtails drying their wings in the bed that grew the parsley and dill they devoured as babies. By the time I got inside, found the camera, changed the batteries only two were left.

I'm breathless! How beautiful and wonderful!

The past few days I have found myself going to the garden with my snips AND my camera.

How beautiful. Yes miracles do happen, but isn't it special when we get to see them?

What a beautiful picture of that butterfly.
I love them and they are so lovely to watch flitting from flower to flower.
Thank you for the picture.

Great pictures. We all have to remember that our babies do grow up but they are still our babies.

I hope they come to visit your garden on a regular basis.
