More Butterflies and Blossoms are on my Dotty Pants blog. It's very hard to decide which to post when butterflies are plentiful. It takes patience to get their little pictures, but it is very rewarding, the wait.


  1. Nell Jean, Thanks for joining Bloomi8n' Tuesday! Your butterfly pictures are amazing1 I know how long it takes to get a good one. Jean

  2. Gee Nell ~ You have a lot of butterflies there. I've been seeing a lot of zebras and sulphurs lately. An occasional gulf, a ruddy daggerwing the other day, and also a black eastern swallowtail. You have lots of the swallowtails, what is your lure?


  3. You have beautiful flowers and property! I enjoyed my tour, and all the butterflies are amazing.

  4. I think that's more butterflies on one plant than I've seen all summer! That Esperanza is so pretty!

  5. Do you know how lucky you are to be able to say that the butterflies are plentiful? I've seen so few of them around here this summer. So, thanks for sharing yours with mne.


I look forward to comments and questions and lively discussion of gardening and related ideas.
