Butterfly Wednesday

1st Swallowtail Butterfly of the year June 8 2018 sm

I’m so glad that a few of my Lilacs decided to bloom this year – otherwise I likely wouldn’t have seen this first Swallowtail butterfly flitting around the garden, searching for food, so early in the year.  Last summer the garden was full of them – they seemed to love all the zinnias I had planted, and perhaps the parsley as well – I understand they like to lay eggs in parley and I did see caterpillars in the larger clumps.
