A beautiful April Day

The Magnolias are at peak bloom.
The bees are awake.

All the Daffodils are in bloom.

The wild violets are just beginning to bloom.
A Black Swallowtail butterfly surprised us this morning.
My husband found a chrysalis the first of March while cleaning
up the hops. He brought it inside. I placed it in a bowl with dried flowers.  We were much surprised to find the Swallowtail on the windowsill this morning. Spring is here.
March went out cold and damp.
April came in sunny and warm.

You are a fellow butterfly whisperer too, I see. There is just too much beauty around is, isn't there?
