Butterfly and Coneflower


I always knew coneflowers were a butterfly attractant, but this year is the first year I recall seeiing quite so many on this particular plant. I don’t know what’s different this year but I hope it occurs next year as well.

I think today was the last time I will dead head in hopes for additional blooms. The remaining dead blossoms will be allowed to go to seed and feed the finches in the fall.

Red Admiral! Thank you...I kept thinking it was a Painted Lady but when I looked it up it certainly didn't match. I feel so much better now that I know what it is. They are everyone and a quite patient with me and my camera.

Hope you are enjoying your book Sarah!

Take care,
Liane
