journaling: When I bought the butterfly plants I had high hopes of attracting butterflies to my deck. I watched religiously but no butterflies landed on the beautiful purple flowers. Then one day, almost two months after I bought them, this glorious yellow and black Swallowtail came to visit. He fluttered and flitted around for quite some time, and stayed just long enough for me to capture his photo. Sadly, he hasn’t returned.
