in the garden

We've been having the most beautiful warm and sunny weather that I have no choice but to be outside. I potted up a few plants including these two gazania's for my back deck. It is a southern exposure with no shade and these love the hot sunny locals. I love the bright pink and orange combo, I seem to be using it everywhere I can.
 I did a little bit of weeding and mulching at my front walk. One thing i do is limit any one task so that I won't be up all night in pain.
 Yesterday, after I had taken the bird photos, these butterflies moved into the apple tree. I'd like to get a butterfly reference book so I can find out what they are.

I'm looking forward to some rainy weather so I can sew again! I'll get to sew all day on Saturday at our last guild UFO day..

I'm out weeding and I notice that not all butterflys look the same, too! :) Easy does it. We have a whole summer ahead of us!

Isn't it a great day!!! I have the same plants waiting to go in the ground...I'm still a bit timid of frost. Mine are orange and yellow...but we call them Gerber gazaniss are smaller....with a more narrow leaf...oh; I had a peek at Leslie's blog; beautiful work.
