We’ve had swarms of Violet-green Swallows feeding on flying insects over the ditches and the river.
I made a short video (with flamenco guitar) of the swarm of painted ladies on our purple Salvia.
I finally replaced the hammock, before the kitties wore it out completely, and before it gave way and a kitty fell through it. I started to replace it last week, but Loki kept attacking me and would not let me take the old one down. I took the old hammock down, threaded the rope through a new beanbag, and hung up the new hammock while Loki was outside pussyfooting around.
A swarm of Painted Ladies descended on our purple salvia this morning. The Checkered Whites have been around for a while.
