The last week of August saw a lot of beautiful butterflies in our garden, and a smattering of birds here and there. Our zinnias are hanging on, so we expect to continue enjoying their color into September. Enjoy as we wrap up the pics of August.

Tiger Swallowtail on our purple cone flower.
And on the marigolds guarding the garden.
Coming in for a landing on the mother ship of zinnias!
This morning three female Painted Buntings on the feeder, and not a male to be seen!

Pipevine Swallowtail matching oranges with the zinnia.
And showin' his blue.
It was a busy day in the garden, as evidenced by two on the same blossom at one time.
