Tigers in the Garden

Tiger Swallowtails have been quite busy in the garden this summer, especially lately.
Happy Animal Wednesday to everyone. For more animal sightings go to Auntie Mims.

Your butterfly is so well done! We don't often get really colorful ones, but I sure do like them when I do see them.

Ooo, pretty painting! I haven't seen many butterflies around here this year. I have lots of flowers blooming, so I will watch for them.

I saw two yesterday on the milkweed that I planted several years ago. Weird plant but I am glad it now blooms and attracts them. Nice painting!

Good to see you are creating again. I am afraid I won't have any time the coming weeks for anything creative apart from painting walls and decorating , but I love that too. Only I have so little to show on my blog.......
Right now I am in LA having a wonderful break.....

have a wonderful day :)

Hi Lisa,

I remember the Swallowtail so well when I visited last year. They are such stunning butterflies.
A beautiful image Lisa.....

Poppi has done a little drawing for you. I shall send it at some point.
I am taking care of the children on and off for the next six weeks (school holiday), so shall not be around as much as I would like.

Hugs.

I never see this type of tiger pattern butterfly near my neighbourhood.

Indeed, you are lucky to find one.
I actually would love to see one in real life!

Cheers,
Yoon See
