Getting a few butterflies in the yard lately. Here's what I think is a Black Swallowtail, feeding on blooms from my hedges (Ligustrum japonicum) --
Madame Butterfly...female Black Swallowtail?

I always delay trimming the hedges until after they bloom, knowing that the bees and butterflies feed on the blooms early in the season.

And a Cabbage White on the foliage of an Aster --

Also have a few roses blooming --
“Jude the Obscure” rose

I don't take care of the roses like I used to, so these are the hardier ones! This is 'Jude the Obscure'.
