Purty! Nice pics, and I'm sure they are fun to watch too!
Thanks. Beats TV all to heck!
Beautiful. We don't see many butterflies up here; in fact, I'm not sure we see any at all.
Never thought of that. My garden is deliberately geared to butterflies and hummingbirds - I'd hate to not have them.
Have a friend who's a custom jeweler/blacksmith. His shop used to be located next to a nursery, and the staff there planted butterfly bush next to the jewelry shop window. We'd watch all the different species of butterflies/bees and the occasional hummingbird that visited whenever I visited during the warm months. His shop currently is out in a pine wood, but he has bluebird boxes set up, and we watch the antics of the bluebirds now.
I planted a full sized butterfly bush several years ago and it has been spreading itself. The one in the photo is a dwarf bush that I put in front of the porch. Two bird feeders and a hummingbird feeder their, too. I spend a lot of time sitting and watching.
Gorgeous! Very relaxing to watch I'm sure. My daughter can watch butterflies for hours.
Thanks! That and the hummingbirds are enchanting.
The most beautiful butterfly in the world,right there.
Thanks so much! I had a zebra swallowtail visit a couple weeks ago but I haven't had one where I could get a pic.
