How DOES the Garden Grow – With Red Spotted Purples

Darting quickly around the garden resting only for a moment

The Red Spotted Purple is a joy to watch

As I leaned into the Spicebush trying to capture her in a photograph, my cheek was pricked and then began burning.

Stop by tomorrow to see the miniscule creature that caused me much pain.
