The garden club stopped by today,
They surveyed my yard but didn't stay,
Except for one who kissed a pink.
"You could do a lot better than this," she said. I think,
I know exactly what this garden needs.
A lot more flowers and a lot fewer weeds.
That's all she really had to say.
With Swallowtail disdain,
She quietly flitted away.
I wrote this in 2011 after five butterflies flitted through my back yard.
