Just for pretty: Butterfly

Hello, everyone.

DH is still fully engaged on the big project at the Olde Homestead. The quilt block has had only a small amount of progress since yesterday morning.

But! I found a picture from the Edinburg Birding Center that y'all might like.

Butterfly beauty for the weekend. The purple flowered thing is not actually ageratum, it's a native Texas shrub that needs a little extra water in our area, but is amazingly attractive to the monarch family of butterflies.

(Link is to a summary of the genus on Wikipedia. I don't know which of several blue-flowered ones this is.)
