  1. Great series of butterfly shots. Looks like you'll be having lots of "French" fries this year!

    1. I have to admit that we seldom fry! These potatoes last so well if kept in the dark and the cool. Last years only ran out just before we went to the USA. Hope all is well Diane

  2. Diane, the butterflies shots are so beautiful. You have so many types of butterflies visiting your garden! What a great harvest of potatoes. Maybe I will try to grow some potatoes.
