Last fall I planted a section of wildflowers next to the side of the house. Until yesterday, the only flowers were Crimson (Italian) clover. Last night I noticed some other flowers about to open. This morning there were three California Poppy flowers, and one blue wildflower (ID unknown). There will be many more of the blue flowers opening soon. I also saw some other varieties of poppies about to open.
Then as I was about to go inside I saw a Clearwing Moth (Strawberry Moth, Hummingbird Moth) working the Rhododendron flowers. In the past, I have only seen these later in the summer (August – September). This made my day. After that, I kept going out hoping to see it again.
