  1. The colors of the butterfly is beautiful! The pictures of the flowers almost seems like you can reach out and pick them. Wonderful!


    • The butterflies were released from the Butterfly House recently, it was nice to find them “hanging around” the gardens, Shirley. Your compliment on the flower photographs was a delight to read. Thanks.


    • We don’t usually see Monarchs until fall for some reason, Laura–and this was at the botanical garden, where they’d just been released from the exhibit. Thank you!


    • It is a beauty, Pix. They are fairly protected at the butterfly house exhibit, and they were just released at summer’s end.
      One rhododendron we planted in the spring is fully abloom, the second has a bud starting to open. The third looks like a stick! Don’t know if it’s going to make it. Fall blooms are a nice surprise, most of our garden has faded, too. The Russian Sage still has purple flowers, and the blossoms on the Vitex tree are evident again. And I noticed fringy pink flowers on the Lorapetalum! The rest if pretty sad-looking. The milkweed was rather prolific this year, there’s been a cloud of seeds floating here, there and everywhere since the pods started breaking open.
