It is Official

the neighborhood must call me the crazy old lady. They just didn't care to ask what I was doing out in the pouring down rain. They went on like they couldn't see me. Enlarge each photo to see the wonder of it all.
I had to kill the wasp



















My back got real wet






This is a very slow birth .
















This started around 9:00 and when the butterfly got up on the flower it was 12:23. There is no sun to dry it's wings so it took longer maybe.
