I spent some time this afternoon sitting by an open window and watching the activity in my butterfly/hummingbird garden. How exciting to see so many different creatures in my garden! I took a lot of pictures, but right now as I'm preparing this blog post we are getting a thunderstorm along with some lightening so I better make this post brief and only show the monarch pictures tonight. I'm so thankful we are getting this much needed rain, things were so dry today. I started to water but didn't, I'm really glad I made that choice now.
This verbena bonariensis is by far the most popular thing in my garden. I don't think I'll deadhead these and just let them drop seed.
