Zinnia and American Lady


The butterflies absolutely LOVE my zinnias - especially this American Lady!  She and two silver spotted skippers are constantly in attendance.  I like to spend a little time in the garden just observing, watching the activity of living things.  There are so many bees and butterflies moving in and out among the blooms, and the occasional skink comes out to bask in the sun.  When I see something new, I look it up, and learn a little something, too.  A quick paint and I'm on to the tending of these flowers - and many more. The work is endless here, but the life bursting forth from these beds is sweet reward. Painting number 3892 in 3892 days.
