Three butterflies are nectaring on dahlias, Rudbeckia, Asclepias curavassica, Tatarian asters. Bees are dominating and chasing butterflies. Also saw a Black Swallowtail butterfly and 2 of its caterpillars on Dill and a dozen cabbage butterflies mating/nectaring. Occasional sighting of American Lady and Fritillary is also a surprise. With 200+ dahlias, 70+ Salvias, 100+ cannas blooming, 60*F feels like summer.
