It's A Garden Party - The Flowers Have Wings!

This feature, originally known as Saturday Farmer's Market, was created by Heather at Capricious Reader, and then hosted by Chris at Stuff as Dreams are Made on.

Say hello to the Western Tiger Swallowtail. Although common in the Bay Area, it's been years since we've seen one of these near our garden in the north.

S/he is enjoying the Lantana, not native to California, but drought tolerant none the less. In fact, while the rest of the garden - flowers, fruits, veggies - has been getting by on reduced water, I haven't watered this bed at all since the middle of last summer.  

QUOTE of the DAY

Everything is blooming most recklessly; if it were voices instead of colors, there would be an unbelievable shrieking into the heart of the night.

- Rainer Maria Rilke,
from: Letters of Rainer Maria Rilke.
