Everything is blooming most recklessly; if it were voices instead of colors, there would be an unbelievable shrieking into the heart of the night. (Rainer Maria Rilke)

Where are all the Butterflies?

I have not seen many Butterflies yet this season.

Last year at this time, there were tons roaming the yard.

I've planted lots of their favorite flowers, like these purple pentas.

And this pretty pink Lantana.

Salvia, Verbena, Agastache (that's pronounced Ag-a-STACK-ay, and it's just plain fun to say) and even more Lantana are placed around the birdbath to help attract them.

I even got a Butterfly Bush...

Well, until they return there is always plenty to enjoy - like the birds

And the bees

And all the other creatures that happily live in the yard

Hopefully it won't be long until they gracefully flutter around and enjoy the butterfly garden again.
