Daphne In Bloom

The Daphne bushes outside the dinning room window are coated in sweet smelling blooms. Early in April they were already attracting bees as the buds started to form. Blooming Daphne bushesNear the middle of April the hummingbirds began flitting around the bushes, and today I saw the first swallowtail butterfly of the season as it danced from bloom to bloom.

Oh, and did I mention that it is also the perfect lookout spot for our striped barn cat? He hangs around nestled between the Daphne while he waits for the day to begin.
