I don't see many butterflies around the garden this year except for this cabbage white butterfly. I told myself that I don't need any more photos of them, but this one insisted. She posed from one flower to the next until I can't resist any more and snapped some pictures. After that, she was quite happy and went away. Happy weekend to all!
My nephew stopped by yesterday afternoon with his dog, Boogie, to check out Capone. At first encounter, Capone ran and looked for protection from us. Then, he got to know Boogie and he couldn't stop himself from bothering the Bulldog.
At times, we had to take Capone and put him in his kennel since he couldn't stop. He thinks he could take Boogie while the Bulldog is just being nice. The two dogs had fun frolicking around the house and the yard though.
I consider myself a lucky woman when I get to see this little beautiful skipper for two straight months. It didn't come every day, but only once in July and now once in August. It is known as Checkered/Grizzled/Hairy streak skipper.
These are some of the flowers that are growing in my garden at the moment: white Shasta daisy, pink cosmos, blue weed flower, black-eyed Susan, pink mini bachelor button, night shade, and orange wallflowers. I don't know the name of the tall pink ones in the little square above. They are quite pretty, and difficult to photograph.
Coming in to bloom is the gladiolus as I can see the tiny buds on the stalk. So far, I only have seen two different types of butterflies on these flowers. Have a great week..
