It can get too hot for gardeners, but not too hot for the multitude of butterflies in our Cedars of Lebanon butterfly garden. We have had an abundance of Pipevine Swallowtails, Spicebush Swallowtails, Eastern Tiger Swallowtails, Sulphurs, Skippers, Black Swallowtails & Giant Swallowtails. All putting on a show for visitors to the garden these last two months. See Linda Robertson’s photos, past and present, by clicking the image or link below.
