When I saw the female Tiger Swallowtail in her
black form my heart sang out,
"Welcome dear friend. I have missed you."
The Black Swallowtail is already laying eggs.
I left the fennel for hosting her caterpillars.
The miracle continues.
All of Spring has bloomed at once.
I check in the morning to see what bloomed over night.
I check in the afternoon to see what is faded.
The Chamomile could open this afternoon.
The Garden Rue is a host plant for the Giant Swallowtail.
It stayed green all winter.
The Bridal Wreath Spirea is beginning to bloom.
I cut a few branches for the house.
The Rhododendron is out pacing the azaleas.
The Scottish once called the last days of March as borrowed days.
I think these March days are borrowed from June.
Highs this weekend are to be in the upper 80's.
The peonies could bloom.
I am dancing as fast as I can trying to keep up with Spring.
