Couldn’t get enough of this bush literally coated in butterflies. I thought it was a bushy butterfly bush, but Lucy told me it was salvia. Add to my “must plant in eventual dream garden” list (which is getting quite long).
Little by little the bird feathers its nest, and object by heart burnished object we surround ourselves with lovely necessities of memory and function. It is these things that make a silly Apartment a Home or a silly Wednesday an Occasion.
Whether my nest is an old farmhouse, a sixth floor tenement walk up, or a brownstone basement... whether I share it with family, vagabonds, women of heart and mind, or a little brown cat and a sweet ginger banjo, my principal joy is filling it with light and laughter (and corralling).

You will have to post the full latin name of that plant – I need some! What fantastic photos – the colours just jump-off of the screen!
It’s Salvia x sylvestris, and bees love it too!
I could look at them all day! They’re beautiful.
Me too! They just kept slowly beating their wings open and closed, it was mesmerizing!
