Let The Butterfly Visits Begin!

My hubby (who simply can’t take a trip to Home Depot or Lowes without returning with another flower to plant) has been humoring me by adding more blossoms that attract butterflies and hummingbirds to our front yard.

Like this butterfly bush. Β I was so excited when a Tiger Swallowtail showed up for a visit!

It’s still a bit early in the season, but I am hoping that there will be many more picture taking opportunities in the days ahead – especially later in the summer when the birds are molting and not very photogenic!

  1. I can’t wait for butterflies! I’m still waiting for my birds to take a bath! Any tips to lure them in? πŸ™‚

    1. They will get in eventually. It does help to have some shrub cover nearby though.
      And now that I have seen one butterfly on the bush I am constantly running out front to see if another is flitting about!

  2. I love butterflies! I think I’m going to have to plant one of those bushes too!! πŸ’•πŸ›βœ¨ Your photos are always a delight, Kathy! 😊

    1. I found that I so enjoyed taking pictures of them last summer (in other people’s yards!) that perhaps we should try to lure some to our yard!
