|A closer look brings a great surprise!|
We are enjoying the colorful Zinnias in our yard. They were planted from seeds saved from last year's beautiful flowers. It's amazing how many seeds one can harvest from one flower! In the spring the seeds were planted. They took a bit longer to sprout and grow this year, due to the rainfall we had in this area. However, once they started growing the flowers have added so much color to our yard.
This Tiger Swallowtail Butterfly flew in one afternoon. Moving slowly and not too close I was able to snap a photo! A beautiful sight!
