South Winds jostle them-
Bumblebees come-
Hover- hesitate-
Drink, and are gone-

Butterflies pause
On their passage Cashmere-
I- softly plucking,
Present them here!

- Emily Dickinson

Just a way of saying that there have been a number of butterflies in the garden recently. And also, amongst all the birds, the silvereyes again. Annette found half of one of their eggs on the ground. We want to assume that the little one hatched and that is why they are flitting round, teaching the child/ren well.
