Today is warm and muggy, although not as hot as it has been earlier.  We hauled three huge piles of grass.  

Sweat bees are out in force.  :P  AAAAAAA stop licking meeeee!  O_O  Yes, I was wearing repellent.  No, it didn't help.

The faery ring is still going strong.  Biggest mushroom has opened its cap and has a long skirt flapping in the breeze.  Literally. That thing looks like Marilyn Monroe standing on the fan grate.  :D

Butterflies everywhere today.  Monarchs, including a mating pair.  Painted ladies.  Cabbage whites.  One that's either a black-phase tiger swallowtail or a mourning cloak, couldn't tell from a distance.

My naked lady lilies are blooming.  \o/

Would a salt lick for horses keep the sweat bees off of people?

Also, butterflies!

:D Flutterbies everywhere! Go forth and be plentiful, beneficial pretties! Yay mating monarchs, especially! Any sulfurs around? We used to delight whenever we saw one of those among the cabbage whites.

Icks, sweat bees. :s
