Different butterflies are showing up. The Luffa is blooming again.
Never was able to see her open wings, could be a Painted Lady. I left some Lavender blooms so they would go to seed. Mantis must be finding bugs in the lavender bed.
Today I am grooming the east side. I have zinnias growing where the day lilies are planted. I will work with the butterflies.
Sprite asked if the Mantis was related to the Walking Stick. It is not. I did find a nice web site that has information on the Walking Stick. I will look for them in the gardens. They are very cool bugs! Thank you, Sprite, for reminding me of them.
