There was the most lovely butterfly outside on the patio the last few days. It kept flitting among the yellow flowers in the top galvanized tub.
I tried to get a photo of it multiple times with its wings spread wide. But any time I crept within four feet of it it flew away. Then it swooped back down to these yellow flowers when I sat back down.
The butterfly seemed bigger than most butterflies I’ve seen.
When it took to the sky it somehow looked a bit heavy and bopped up and down like a kite on a string as it flew around the patio.
It was almost like something was weighing it downward.
It wanted nothing to do with any flower on my patio but this yellow annual I’ve never planted before.
It was besotted with these flowers. They’re called Yellow Goldilocks Rocks. This flower is in the Aster family.
If you want butterflies in your yard you might seek out these flowers. The butterfly has been out there swooping up and down again and again the last few days, and always to these same flowers.
I’m probably going to shave my head again in the next few days. When I wake up and have bed head I figure it’s time.
I love waking up and not having to do a thing to my hair. It is so absolutely liberating.
Above is how it looked yesterday. Look how it’s grown.
If you have a cat, have you ever bought organic cat crack for it? Well I ordered it because I was curious and because I wanted to put a bit of catnip on the new cat tower.
I sprinkled some on the top platform. First she sniffs and nibbles a bit.
It was hilarious to watch her.
Then she flops down on her back and side and rolls in it, looking a tad bit stoned, I might add.
She loves this stuff.
I’ve never given her straight catnip before. She has little toy mice that have catnip in them, but it’s obviously not as potent as this.
Have a happy and safe weekend.
