I am pleased to see monarchs fluttering about, the cabbage whites are becoming more visible, and I’ve spotted a few admirals, but not as plentiful as seasons past.

I’ve focused on orange flowers in the past month for #TeamOranje, but the Lilies are abundant in other colors as well.

There are also other flowers whose names I don’t know, but their scents are lovely.
