Flowers and a Question Mark

New bloomers include Spiderworts, Milkweed almost, Comfrey (known locally as Lamb's Ear), Purple Asters, the blooms have appeared on the Wild Ginger, Wood Sorrel is blooming, the Pennyroyal is up enough to be fragrant, and there are some very well done Wild Geraniums.

A Question Mark is a butterfly. The one I saw was gunmetal blue-gray on the hindwing, outlined with white, much nicer than the photo in the link. I also had an Eastern Pondhawk, one of the few dragons I've learned so far.
