Work, party, and swallowtail

We had a great work party on Saturday and finished all the planting!  There was also a special visit from a swallowtail butterfly.  We have three species of swallowtail in this area – Anise swallowtail which loves the fennel growing all over the garden – the Western tiger swallowtail and the Pale swallowtail.  So do watch for all of them in the next month or two.
