We've had an explosion of Eastern Tigers here too, it's so great to see so many of them in the gardens. We also have a new batch of black swallowtail cats on the fennel, we counted at least 8 of them, first or second instars. Before that we had two that matured and went walkabout.

I could have sworn I commented on them yesterday, but I don't see it.

Anyway, thank you for sharing your magical experience with us, turttle. Nice to see you got some photos to document it! I've seen one or two so far, but I hope to get inundated here as well.

I have also seen a lot of Tiger Swallowtails. I saw them lay eggs on my black cherry.

#1 Swamp Milkweed. Hoping for seeds this year.
#2 Cup Plant. Surprising how large the flowers are.

Nice shots, rockerBOO. I especially like the detail in the swamp milkweed.

Good luck with getting seeds.

Oh shucks. When I was at my friends who sold her house I commented on how nice her Joe pye weed looked. Talked to her after that and she said you should buy some it is attracting a lot of butterflies. She is a little too honest about leaving things as is after the house is sold since the new owners are not interested in the gardens. As someone in this forum pointed out she could dig some up of each plant as long as she still leaves some of each.

This next one, Desmodium, it has the 3 green leaves, and it is a legume, I call them 'sticktights' because of the fuzzy green triangular seed, I like the pink blooms. We have another one looks just about like it with white blooms.What's Blooming Now 2013-june-forbes2013-011.jpg

Here is another, unknown to me, but I like the small 3/8" yellow blooms, and the pretty leavesWhat's Blooming Now 2013-earlyaugust2013-008.jpg
