weather slowly getting better

The weather has been getting better here. Last Sunday, 5/8 I saw a Red Admiral resting near by false nettle patch. I was out of town a lot this week though. I did see a Tiger Swallowtail fly past today, but it is supposed to start raining here soon. -- update - it never did rain - didn't see any more butterflies though. oh wait, one of my black swallowtails that was overwintering emerged today and flew away, couldn't see if it was male or female.
