art, plants & maine coon cats

went out today... water the monster basil (which must be turned into pesto soonest). Basil and salvia were covered with bees (various) and butterflies (various). Bees tended to be honey and bumble, but I didn't look too close. The butterflies were a great variety of small butterflies. One Buckeye (Junonia coenia), a couple of Small White ( Pieris rapae ), an Orange Sulfur (Colias eurytheme) and a couple of Fritallary but I am not sure which (pretty little rusty guys).

I went out to water things and then just sat for a couple of minutes just watching the little flutterbys. Now I have to go back to work.
