The Occasional Black Swallowtail

It's been two years since I saw a black swallowtail butterfly, and eight years since I got a good picture of one. He was flitting about the yard.

I'm not showing you more on the trailer yet. That's not because I didn't work on it. I worked (by pacing myself) all day long, despite the heat. Discovered yet another entryway for water. Made another trip to the store. However, the only thing I finished was to put the third coat of polyurethane on the walls, and that looks an awful lot like the second coat, so you don't need to see that again. Hopefully, tomorrow, I can actually finish something. I also washed a load of bedding, mowed one section of the yard, and popped 20 more autumn olive. Eventually, I'll get them all, I think, Although sometimes it seems like they grow faster than I can work.

Want to place any bets on whether I'll have the trailer ready for a trip by July 20? Haha. I'm trying!
