Still no sewing going on here. It's all I can do to work and keep up with the yard work. It's been a few years since we mulched the flowerbeds. The only one I've gotten done this year is the one by the deck, but it makes it look so much better. The others may have to wait until later this summer or even next year. But still, one done is better than none.
The other day there were several of these butterflies on my purple coneflowers. You can see how badly the Japanese beetles have damaged the coneflowers. They've been wreaking havoc with my yellow rose too. Still, it's lovely to see the butterflies in the garden! :0)
