butterflies I was about to prepare a post about the wonderful Bengali-style poppyseed potato green bean dish we had the other night and was just admiring the photos when I got called by T to

“Quick!! Bring the camera into the lane. There are butterflies everywhere!!”

And as I hope you can see, he was right! The branches were covered with butterflies. A few bees and wasps were joining in. (I have no idea what the plant is; the elderly gentleman who used to live there considered it to be a weed….)

butterflies What an amazing thing!! We stood out there gazing at them for about half an hour, then went inside, bidding them farewell and safe journey across Lake Ontario.

Okay, maybe this isn’t exactly ontopic for this blog, but the butterflies are getting plenty of food and drink….

Remind me to post about posta (white poppy seeds).
