First Swallowtail

Here in my garden I sit admiring the fruits of my labor. It’s been a busy morning of cleaning, raking, weeding, sweeping, and planting french breakfast radish seeds. The solitude and peace is marvelous, and the only sounds I hear is a distant lawn mower and birds singing.
Spring arrives in my part of the world early; it is my favorite time of year.

vivid green leaves sprout
white blossoms unfurl sweet scent-
swallowtail nectars
