butterflies and dogkisses

butterfly drinking from wounded Oak

Butterfly where might you land

On top of the Zinnia

Or in the palm of my hand

butterfly and friends drink Oak sap

Will you come to the garden?

We planted just for you

Drinking sweet nectar

Dancing the way you do

butterfly drinking sap from wounded Oak

There are all your favorite flowers

We’ll watch you for hours

‘til the sun goes down

When you are not to be found

where do butterflies go at night...

These butterflies didn’t come for flowers.  They have come for the sap seeping from a wounded Oak in my yard.

red-spotted purple, I hope...

Wait, I'm an insect hunter!

Keeper of dogkisses
