New floral arrivals
Today brought four stalks of blue hyacinths on the oak motte and two Geranium narcissus flowers near the gate to Mack's yard. We haven't checked yet, but it does seem that flowers are arriving in an odd order this year. There are now two red anemones and one blue one, too many anemone blanda flowers to count, too many Montopolis narcissus flowers to count, and more and more Little Marvel flowers and a few pea pods forming. Late this afternoon we saw a question mark butterfly. Milkweeds continue to be consumed by monarch caterpillars, which eat the seed pods but seem to leave the flowers themselves alone.
