Green Thumb Sunday
My neighbors spend a lot of time on their deck. They've told me how much they enjoy watching the butterflies on my butterfly bush. They claim to have seen up to 20 at a time. I think that may be an exageration. There was wine involved in that conversation. The most I have ever counted was nine at one time. It's very difficult to get a good picture of them all at once. The camera doesn't "see" what the eye does. You may have to double click the above picture to enlarge it and see the two swallowtail butterflies. The monarchs seem to prefer the tithonia.
