The Sweet Basil plant is one of my favourite herbs, but in this case, he’s one of my favourite Backyardigans. As far as I can tell, he’s still single, but yesterday I spotted a very tiny Basilisk Lizard in my lanai, so maybe Basil is a bit of a ‘dark horse’. 🙂
Happy Monday to you all. Hubby did a sterling job over the weekend, and the necessary amount of wood flooring is down. I’m now waiting on tenterhooks for my piano to arrive. So exciting!
Through my bathroom window, I spied this pretty Gulf Fritillary, also known as the ‘Passion Butterfly’. She sat very patiently whilst I tried to get her in focus.
This butterfly is very common in the southern United States, and produces multiple generations each year. I wonder if she is a relative of the poor dead beauty I found at the beginning of May. I think she may have stopped by to say ‘Hi. Thanks for the nice sendoff you gave to my mom.”
Jude also hosts a ‘Macro Monday’ here.
Happy Monday to you all. Hope your week is going to be a really good one.
Hope you all had a delightful weekend. Today I’ve spent ages trying to draw a Great Blue Heron, but it looks more like a duck. 😦 Now, the real deal is sitting right outside, laughing at me.
