As my husband set up the sprinkler yesterday morning, we saw a hummingbird flying around. It hovered over the sprinkler a couple of times, taking a little shower, and darted from place to place. Hopefully, we can get a photo one of these days.
Brendan and Theresa came running inside today, urging me to come and see the swallowtail butterfly in our backyard. Several of the other children and I quickly went outside and were rewarded for doing so. The butterfly remained resting on the rhododendron for a couple of minutes.
We have added Blanketflower 'Burgundy' (Gaillardia Grandiflora), Blanket Flower (Gaillardia 'Goblin') and a third Gaillardia (I can't find the tag, but I think that it was Arizona Sun) to one of our front garden beds.
