I was watching for Sternbergia, these from Barbara from Texas.
Blooming among Lantana foliage, typical of fall bulbs to bloom bare stemmed.
More and more Lycoris radiata pop up at edges of beds and in the lawn.
I read yesterday not to plant Red Spider Lilies and Oxblood Lilies together as they detract from each other. It doesn't require much thought to realize that. One follows the other, but they need room to multiply.
On to Fall Butterflies. Here's a gorgeous animated poster I found:
Butterflies of North America
It features 42 different butterflies, fluttering. When I looked closely, it does not show a Gulf Fritillary, one of our best orange butterflies. I counted a dozen that we do see here.
One of those is Spicebush Swallowtail.
First there was one, then two, then three.
They do love Pentas.
Here's the only picture I was able to get of the Sulfur Butterfly that was
nectaring on a Geranium. Before I went for the camera, he spread his wings
and posed so pretty. Another came along. I went for the camera and you
know how that always turns out.
