Went out to get the mail and found quite a bit of butterfly activity by the mailbox! All on Richardia grandiflora which is blooming all over kept areas right now in Florida (this exotic ground cover is sometimes called “Florida Snow”). The butterflies love it as a nectar source. Monarchs are coming through on the cold front.
