A welcome spring azure sighting

After a program talking about gardening for pollinators this morning, and mentioning Spring Azures and Cornus florida, as their host plant (probably among other Cornus spp.), and their early emergence, I was delighted to see two fluttering around below the deck, in our woodland landscape.

It's been cold, but warmed up this afternoon (~ 60° F) -- enough for them to fly, obviously.  What a delight.

Not my photo, but a nice one -- these are very small butterflies, about an inch wide.

Truly, spring IS coming, in spite of the unexpected snow on Wednesday.

I enjoy hearing from fellow nature lovers and gardeners. Let me know your thoughts.
