E. Tiger coming to zinnias and 'jeanna' Phlox paniculata. Monarch laying eggs on c. milkweed. Silver spotted skipper first visit this summer. On Sat a Black ST emerged from overwintered chrysalis–that took a while! Today's Black ST chased by a catbird.

[Very interesting late emergence of over-wintering BLST cat! Can't help wondering how often that happens. jc]
