Weather here is mild, and it rained buckets one night. Torenia, portulaca, ice flowers, clover, Queen Anne's lace, morning glories, thistles, and goldenrod are blooming. And we had monarchs! For the first time in many years, the butterflies have come in waves. Several times over the last week they've been chaining up on the trees. :D
