Garden Fun in the Sun

It was a beautiful day to be in the garden. I did some weeding, planted a few plants, watered all the plants that are still in pots and took a few pictures in the garden. It's not often that I actually catch a butterfly with the camera, but this tiger swallowtail was so interested in the pink painted daisy that he ignored me. Look how fuzzy he is.
I also cut catnip for drying. It's a.regular thing for me to cut catnip on a dry day. I use it to stuff catnip mice that I knit. You can see them here!

Ed  pulled weeds, planted plants, cut the scapes off half his garlic, took cuttings of a pink wild rose, hilled the fall planted potatoes, and mowed the grass. We both had a very happy day in the garden.
