coreopsisThe annual wildflower mix on Button Moon is still going strong, with tickseed and late marigolds  beginning to take over from the linum and nigella.   This is great news not only for us but for the host of pollinators who are enjoying these riches.  Today I pursued, in the nicest non stalker like way, a tiny blue butterfly.  She landed, briefly, on Eschschlotzia californica ‘Red Chief’ which is lolling about on the adjacent bed.  With a zoom and a lucky shot I captured her, before she flitted off again, blissfully unaware of the huntress.
