The front yard’s Little Princess Spirea shrubs are a magnet for beautiful butterflies! The other day a male Eastern Tiger Swallowtail spent the entire day snacking on nectar and leisurely flying from bush to bush. No lawn ornament adds as much to the Enchanted Garden. Thanks for the visit, little friend, and please come again!

Oh, joy! Norell Avenue (County Road 55) is undergoing resurfacing this summer. Personally, I wish the project would take all year as it’s keeping the traffic down on what’s turned into a speedway for non-residents, who must think it’s some sort of shortcut (to where?). Truck traffic—in particular—is annoying as the rumbling noise they make racing over the railroad tracks disrupts the peace and quiet of rural life.
So, as the sign says, if you don’t live here, stay off the darn road and give us residents a real summer vacation.
