RE: Butterfly population

Although I've seen plenty of cabbage butterflies, this year the other types
of butterflies are only just now beginning to really flit to the bloomers
around the yard.  But then, I don't think I normally see them until about
now anyway.  Unfortunately, Japanese Beetles have already begun to mangle
the blooms of my favorite rose.  I can pull open a tight bud and inside will
be one of those blasted insects!!!  UGH!!!!  They appear only to be thick in
the patriotic garden, but leave the Echinacea and the Russian sage alone.
They don't mess with the candy tuft or the knautia macedonica or the baby's
breath or my bright red lily, thankfully.

Subject: [CHAT] Butterfly population

it has been my observance over the past few years that here in coastal SC
mass of the butterfly population does not show up until late summer, into
early fall. To date, I think I've observed maybe 5 butterflies in my garden.
By September, my yard is swamped.

So I'm wondering what you guys have observed across the country. Jim, do you
get them sooner than me since you're warmer? Just curious, I'm interested to
know if others have huge amounts already.
