The noise you hear toward the end is an old truck going by. Most of the butterflies I am seeing now are Pipevine Swallowtails and Dogface Sulphurs and Skippers. They are particularly attracted to Lantana and Tithonia.
The three following pics are the flowers in the video:
Laura Bush Petunias are at the very front with
Melampodium -- more yellow! -- behind, then
Lantana montevidensis, Duranta and Tithonia.
Tithonia with Ratibida and Gulf Muhly grass down the side.
Dogface Sulphur on Lantana. They ignore the Mexican hats.
Now on to the Purples I started out to show.
Datura. I love the shiny black stems.
Oh, and more yellow!
Persian Shield and a Purple Pentas in the Upper Garden.
Purple Heart and Alternanthera.
I am very fond of chartreuse alternanthera but
it is extremely slow to grow.
Black eyed Susans lay down in the wind the other day.
It's about time to yank the Susans and let
Daturas and Periwinkles take the stage.
Alternanthera and 'Lilacina' Crape Myrtle.
Verbena on a stick appeared with the alternanthera.
Yellow (again) Lantana in the right background.
I mentioned Duranta. It finally has begun to bloom,
but is not enough to show just yet. I want you to
be able to see the wide open blooms.
Vitex has mostly turned to 'Monks' Pepper'
but new blooms have started since the rain.
Butterflies seek out magenta Zinnias.
Another Pipevine vine growing over some old
peach tree sprouts. Pipevine has buds.
For the record, I cut 8 pods of okra in my patch on Thursday.
