Turns out bumbles like lupins as much as they like lavender. The yard is alive this time of year. There were at least four little white butterflies flitting around the front yesterday. Mom said she saw a hummngbird in the butterfly bush this afternoon. We've put out a feeder, but with all the flowers I'd be surprised if it gets much use during the summer. But maybe any visitors will remember that it's there and come see us this fall and winter when pickings are a little skimpier.
We hear a lot of birds this time of year, but don't see that many at the feeders during the summer. Mother Nature provides a lot of goodies this time of year. And relies on us to pick up the slack when the natural things taper off.
