Busy day.......

Yesterday morning when I was watering my outside pots I saw this butterfly on the hosta.

It was folding and unfolding its wings and I took about 10 photos to get two that were good.

My zinnias are blooming.  There are 2 kinds planted here but the second group is about 2 weeks behind the first group.  I had Japanese Beetles on them but I went out with a bowl of soapy water and flicked a bunch into their death and none have been back since then.
Next I mowed the lawn and then did laundry.  I ended up the day by baking cookies.  My granddaughter's family is moving back here and there will be a crew of family and friends cleaning the house they just bought yesterday.  This is my contribution for the workers.
