Blossoms and wings

The bush beans have burst forth between sunset and sunrise. We also find that verbascum has shot up a stalk of flowers. There's only one anemone left, but poppies of many kinds are still coming, as are delphiniums, bachelor buttons, nasturtiums of all colors, black-eyed Susans, sweet peas, firewheels, yellow squash, and corn tassels. There are clouds of butterflies of all sorts and sizes, drawn particularly to lantana. Passion vine is covered with larvae of the gulf fritillary.
