Butterflies and Wisteria

Today I got to see for the first time a butterfly unfolding and drying out. I wish I had gotten to see it emerge from its cocoon but I was a little late. My cat was very interested too, but thankfully I was able to get the butterfly to climb on my finger so I could take it to a safer spot. It was so amazing to watch as it dried and stretched its wings. After watching it for awhile I went back to watering my garden.

Now I have also noticed that my wisteria that my husband got me… ummm… about 8 years ago when it was only about knee high now has seed pods. I’m excited and waiting for it to mature to see if I can start seedlings from it. I start my day at 6 am every morning mainly because we are on a water restrictions and its hard for me to take the heat in Texas so all gardening I do is done by 10 am. The garden is amazing, and I guess my main goal for next years garden is just to be better then this one, and to work on my companion planting.
