Macro Monday: Sweet Basil

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!

Macro Monday: Passion Butterfly

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.
