Desert Rose is blooming beautifully with periwinkle growing wildly behind it.
Skippers seem to be attracted to both the desert rose and periwinkle.
A skipper butterfly is named as such because of its quick, darting flight habits.
I'm happy to see them but as you know, I'm quite happy to see any critters in my garden.
With the 3 collages above, did you START to imagine a nice, neat and colourful garden, filled with butterflies?
Well, that would be a FALSE START.
See reality below.
In reality, Clifford would slam the cockcomb flowers with his face and lie down on them.
In reality, Goldee would look for critters beneath the cabbages and even trample over the cabbages.
In reality, I have too many false starts in trying to tidy up the garden.
I was building a veggie bed to keep the dogs out yesterday.
As usual, the dogs helped out in the garden.
Along the way, the bed changed shape and became a doggie bed.
They lay down on the doggie bed and smiled at me.
What was I thinking?
Another false start!
