Tuesday as I took some photos of the herb garden I was able to capture this beautiful butterfly on my African blue basil.

The wildflowers are doing much better. We have cosmos now:
I have to admit that I ate cherry tomato #2 without washing it or offering VPH half -- and it was good. It was very good.
