In my own backyard

I watched the Tiger Swallowtail
necter in the cone flowers.







This is a beautiful sight.



My doctor wanted me to grow the cone flowers so I could make my own tea.
If I did that I would need to dig up the roots.
I think Tiger Swallowtails are much better medicine!
I can buy tea!



Small feathers were floating in the breeze.
The hybiscus caught one.
Cooper's Hawk must have caught lunch.


The bees are in the Bright Eye Cosmos.




The Mimosa tree is in full bloom.





It is a July haven for bees, butterflies and Hummingbirds.






I walked full circle in my yard.
I walked back to the Tiger Swallowtails.
I shall try to walk a few times each day.
I am walking in beauty in my own backyard.
Happy July!

Your pictures are just beautiful. Love the tiger swallowtail and bees, and the feather in the flower.
I wouldn't want to dig up the roots of my garden plants, either. I'd rather buy tea, too.

I too enjoyed "walking in beauty" with you! If I could find ginseng roots, I'd dig them up. I hear they're worth a pretty penny.
