I returned to the magical, fallow fields that were bursting with
wildflowers and butterflies, as reported a few days ago. It had all been
herbicided, with hardly a wildflower or butterfly left on the some 100 or
200 acres.

In addition to the decline or death of my old age hiking partners and
friends, including a happy and sad memorial for one of them yesterday,
three times this week an old Tiger Swallowtail with wings so worn and
broken that it could not fly, was struggling on my driveway next to the
Lantana, that no longer would extend its life. Butterflying like life is
sad.
