Butterflies, no Monarch

By the time I ambled back to the house for the camera, the Monarch I saw nectaring was gone.  I did get Spicebush and Pipevine Swallowtails and Gulf Fritillaries -- and I remembered to comment.

There was a Buckeye. I forgot to focus on him when I started the second video.

Swallowtails and Gulf Frits

Secrets of a Seedscatterer         


  1. Enjoyed the videos. You have a lot of butterflies in your garden. We have so very few here in the desert.

  2. Thank you for the commentary! I feel like I am walking beside you.
    Glad you mentioned what the lantana was. I was wondering.

    My poor late butterflies have very little left here to nectar on.
    I did leave a few of the phlox when I cleaned the HB bed.

    Things are looking very green down south. We are very, very dry here.

  3. I had both videos going at once, what a show! Our gardens have been filled with butterflies too!

  4. I really enjoy your videos. You get more butterflies than even at the Butterfly Conservancy gardens. So much variety and color. Perfect plantings too.

  5. So many butterflies! Amazing! They are really loving your lantana. Your garden is looking great. For some reason, my lantana is not blooming. It didn't do well last year, either. I think it's just that particular type.


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