Since our flowers came out in the spring we have noticed an over abundance of butterflies, many more than normal. Small, large, different colors, butterflies I’ve never seen. A joy to sit and watch.

Look for your garden to be attacked by a lot of caterpillars later this year.

Yes, I know, I've already seen them. Unfortunately, there appears to be a shortage of wasps, haven't seen any this year, not a single one. I also use insecticide sparingly since it also kills the good insects. But I do have lots of mockingbirds so maybe it will all balance out.
