Who knew a butterfly could be called a pest? Known as flying flowers, they're beautiful to watch and I've never had to apply any type of bug spray to keep them from taking a bite of me. But pest is exactly what a Web site at the University of Kentucky labels the black swallowtail. Not as adults - of course, we're supposed to reform from our childish ways by this point - but its caterpillar sometimes feeds on parsley, carrots and related garden plants. Adults feed only on nectar.

I would like to write about the city of Danville. Danville has changed since I grew up in the area. Some years ago, the City Commission implemented the beautification program with a nice little white truck that somebody drives around. Once a year, in summer, somebody plants a lot of very pretty flowers around town. It looks great and makes jobs too. And Wednesday at noon the Danville-Boyle County Public Library opened its new parking area that looks superb. With this in mind, I would like to address the superb versus the pretty.

Neighbors Robert Palmer, left, and Norm Senkyr of Lynnway Drive took a break from mowing their lawns to visit last week. The two often meet and talk while doing lawn chores. An unusually warm stretch of weather through the end of March and the first of April has many spring flowers blooming early including a group of red tulips on West Lexington Avenue Monday afternoon. Many of the early blooming flowers will have a rough time surviving the next several nights as winter is making a return appearance.

After planting and watering flowers around the headstone, Aerolene Morgerson of Lexington, paused in a moment of silence to remember her daughter, Mary Jo Morgerson, who died when she was one day old 41 years ago. There was a happy ending to the story when her son, Earl Scott Morgerson, was born on the same day her daughter died one year later. Omie Estes placed flowers and an American flag at the grave of her father-in-law during her visit to the Winchester Cemetery during the Memorial Day weekend.
