Besides the wind and bright sun, the Butterflies seem confused as to what time to come out this year. The consensus is that an unusually wet and very cool Spring has delayed things. Whatever the reason, we didn’t see very many butterflies at Boyce Thompson Arboretum this morning. Their wildflowers, on the other hand, were spectacular. (mostly non native)
The Chinese Pistache trees are in full color at Boyce Thompson Arboretum. The Cottonwoods will turn next.
The Arboretum has a wonderful fall festival filled with music going on this month. Worth the drive.
