With all of the butterfly plants you have, I bet your yard is hopping right now!

Ya know.... I saw a photo of that knock down gorgeous arch in your yard last year but.... I don't remember seeing hardly any photos of other areas and.... my bet is.... your property is 1 of those Better Homes and Gardens properties that could be on the cover of a magazine. Am I right? Tell me tell me tell me!!! Don't be shy adding photos just because most don't have showcase type properties. willo and linrose and amelanchier and a few others with magazine cover worthy properties post photos.... it gives the rest of us something to "strive" for!!!

You would think I know how to do this by now, Duh


Equil, you crack me up, I am in the process of replanting many things I lost last year.And what survived is coming back with vengeance. I don't know it is a Better Homes and Gardens yard, But myself and the Butterflies that live here love it. I promise I will post a few shots very soon. We are projected to build two more arbors this year, if I can make it.

I have been suffering because I promised myself I would not pick up the camera until I put a big dent into my project list. With the butterflies rolling in the way they are I will be busy. Today alone I collected 18 GST eggs and 3 first instars.
