{Gardening}: A fritillary landing

 

A fritillary lands on a sunset coneflower. It’s been largely quiet this year in the butterfly garden due to the drought. We’ve been getting rain the last couple of weeks which is really strange for us this time of year. But at least we’re getting some. Too late for much to happen now but I’m thankful for the break from watering to keep everything alive. Plus water from the tap just doesn’t provide the same benefit. The garden has mostly bolted and there isn’t much pretty to see but lots of spent seed heads. The cardinal vines did finally sprout from the rains which will be a lovely shock of color in the coming weeks.
