Red Admiral

I love butterfly names. Monarch. Viceroy. Widow’s Cape. Red Admiral. Someone should write a swashbuckling flintlock fantasy with principal characters all named after butterflies.

It is Red Admiral season, here. They love my coneflowers, which have been fruitful and multiplied in the six summers since I first planted them. I shouldn’t have bothered planting anything else (except, possibly, monarda).
