The Red Admiral & company

Click to expand the view!
These guys have really been enjoying the cone flowers...there is almost always at least one flitting about, and sometimes two and three.  Well, maybe not always, but sure a lot of the time.  Believe it or not, I did notice the companion of the Red Admiral, but I am not sure if it was a mosquito or what.

The Tootie is on her way here...she is sick and her mom and dad both have to work.  So my blogging may be a bit hit and miss.  I have 3 or 4 post scheduled for my other blog, but none for here.  So will just do as I have time.

On a positive note, I did finish the quilting on the baby quilt, and even got the quilt trimmed.  I also got my Juki set up for regular sewing once again.  However I did not get the binding made.  Hopefully, I can get that done in the next few days.  It really doesn't take long to make it.

Love the photo of the butterfly and the coneflower! Pink coneflowers grow profusely in my garden every year--and I love it when the butterflies visit them.

Hope the Tootie gets well soon!

Our Coneflowers are still in the very small bud stage---can't wait though.
Beautiful butterfly with strange friend. Well we don't always get to pick our friends. LOL
Too bad L is not feeling well. It seems that she couldn't come visit a while back cuz you all were not well now it her. Hope she feels better FAST!

These Admirals are so flighty that it is hard to get a good photo of them except from a distance. I guess it would help if I had a nice flower garden like yours!
