My cone flowers are in full bloom, and they seem to have attracted the attention of a certain yellow butterfly.
At this time last year I was in the home stretch of my pregnancy. On the morning we were heading off to the hospital my neighbor came out to wish us well. Maybe because we seemed a little nervous, she also took the opportunity to mention that she saw a yellow butterfly in our garden just the day before. She said she thought it was a good sign.
Our daughter was born that evening. Our neighbor still calls her "little butterfly."
I'm so glad to finally make its acquaintance.
