Amaryllis and Butterfly
The second stem of the amaryllis with its heavy bud was leaning perilously so I fabricated this fence contraption with willow from the garden as a preventive measure. There is a third stem growing also.
There was a butterfly fluttering around the kitchen today. I caught it between two strainers and put it outside. It flew to a sheltered spot under the jasmin nudiflorum which is blooming and settled on a lunaria (honesty) leaf. Maybe it had a drink of water. Maybe a bird will have it for dinner.
Yesterday and all night we had pouring rain with blustery wind. Today the showers are interspersed with sunny spells. What do butterflies do when it rains ? I have no idea. Maybe I will go see if any Yahoos know.
