Have you ever tried breaking open a stem of Jewelweed and rubbing the liquid on the rash? Health food stores sell a tincture of Jewelweed now or you can get it on line. I'm sure you know what Jewelweed looks like. This link is from the Wildflower Center in Texas: https://www.wildflower.org/plants/result.php?id_plant=IMCA

Eyes are windows to the soul! Looking at flowers fills up my soul. I've got to get outside!

I love the glow of white flowers and also scented ones that light up the night and send their fragrance on the wind. Your butterfly is a female Cabbage white. http://www.butterfliesandmoths.org/species/Pieris-rapae

Many of these plants also grow at Thompson Wildlife Management Area in Markham, Virginia. I try to trek out there every Mother's Day to take in the natives at Tower 6 off of Freezeland Road. I've done plant rescues. There are many people who are interested, if someone sets it up. But, you have to get permission from the developers. If you give me contact information, I will approach them. I have a form for participants which releases the developers of any liability. They don't want people getting hurt on their land. My policy is that no one enters the property without supervision, too. And, every hole that is dug is covered back up so surveyors don't break a leg or anyone else.

I mulched my sprouting lilies and milkweeds. I will cover my vibrunum, which is in full bloom now. We can prepare and then hold our breath until it is over. The most awful thing is when we have a hard freeze near the end of May. I've seen this happen at least two times in this area. After that, we don't see many butterflies until July. The butterflies also take a hit.
The fragrance must be glorious. I don't like to see the caterpillars parasitized either. It makes me very sad.

I can't wait for mine to start blooming. Thanks for reminding me to take the time to enjoy the scent.
