The caterpillar count is now up to 5!
Chilly mornings and evenings. Was up so early this morning, out one window was the moon, out the other was the sunrise! Amazing!
Going shopping for the trim for the windows today. My partner bought me an early birthday present...the compound miter saw I will need to cut all the trim pieces!
Still enjoying tomatoes from the garden. So many things blooming! I've added more 'flat topped' flowers for the butterflies this time of year. Aster, helenium, butterfly bush, to go along with the mums, sedums and Montauk daisies. The 'hardy' lily is in full bloom now, too!
The berries on the pyracanthus are deep orange already, the berries on the Virginia creeper are turning dusky purple and the berries on the New England false grape are turning blue! The goldfinches and black capped chickadees are regular visitors on the sunflowers, some of which have been picked clean already!
Next year, I hope to become a 'certified butterfly garden' now that I have confirmed caterpillars!
