Christmas in August

What a beautiful morning. As I walked onto the back porch to take in some cool morning air I was greeted with a delightful sight. A female ruby throated hummingbird sipping nectar from my Yvonne's salvia plant in the backyard. Soon after my Pink Delight butterfly bush was decorated with an assortment of butterflies. It was like a Christmas tree alive with winged wonders. One monarch. One Tiger Swallowtail. One Black Swallowtail (photo on right). Like Christmas during a heatwave. It sure did feel like a gift.
