    Gorgeous! I’ve had and killed a few Iris ensata but they haven’t stayed around for too long. Glorious success!

  11. Alice Pratt says:

    Lovely details! Flowers are more ‘patient’ than butterflies to photograph…😁 the Monarch I was following a few days, wouldn’t stand still!

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Yes, flowers are easier for sure. I’ve been seeing more Monarchs lately and there are caterpillars on my plants. πŸ™‚

      • Alice Pratt says:

        Oh, joy! I’ve not seen any Milkweed nibbles….only one BST ‘pillar here, on Rue & it’s last day on Parsley. Saw a Monarch today, too.

  12. Alice Pratt says:

    ….the Iris’ stripes remind me of Crocus stripes…
