Today's Flower

Now I will say, its as much about the insects as it is about the marigolds. I was out in my veggie patch picking some carrots when the butterfly turned up, then the other butterfly, then the bee and the other bug. The butterfly was not at all interested in what I was doing. It was magical, as I have never been as close to a butterfly before.

Such a lovely Wandered butterfly.
