A Butterfly in Our Sedum


Our small roof garden experiment is only three weeks old, but somehow a butterfly has already found us.

I’d read that a certain type of sedum is the host plant for the San Bruno elfin butterfly, but I didn’t expect any butterflies to stop by our rooftop. Maybe they were already in the neighboorhood taking in Prospect Park and the Brooklyn Botanic Garden?

We were up on the roof with some friends when I saw this butterfly and started snapping tons of pictures with my phone. “It’s just a butterfly,” they said. Bah! I think it’s really cool.
