I heart my backyard

So there's, like, a kind of plant you can, um, plant to attract butterflies, and the house's previous owners planted three of them. They're purty. And today, as I was mowing the lawn, I noticed that there were actually butterflies on them!

There was also a weird looking thing that I can only guess is a queen bee???

Update: It is called a "bee fly." Looks like a bee so you'll stay away for fear of being stung, but it's actually just a giant nectar-sucking fly. A guy I met at a party last night told me. Go figure.

  1. I heart your backyard, too. That bee fly's a very cool thing. You know, even up on my balcony I get bees coming in to taste the lavender--God bless 'em!
