butterfly

I like to pretend that this butterfly comes every year to visit me.  It seems that I always just see one butterfly in the summer.  There are never two or three, just this one that floats from  flower to flower.

In any case I usually chase it around my garden until I get a good picture of it.

There is a small white butterfly that comes to visit me,  but it moves too quickly for me to capture it with my phone camera.

P.S. Just got back from Texas.  I will share on my blog some of the sites I visited next time.❤️💜❤️💜

My barrel of  Vinca plants are my go to flowers for the summer.  They are so easy to take care of.

Just water and they bloom all summer long.  I also love that they come in so many different colors.❤️💜❤️💜

Truthfully my garden is being overrun with weeds.  They are having quite a party in my special place.

But my flowers are doing a good job of showing  off their colors.

My Pincushion flower is lovely.  I like the way it posed for me.

The Gerbera Daisy is bright red-orange and quite big.

I planted Alyssum and Candy Tuft in my water fountain.

Hubby decided he wanted a garden again. He planted  (too) many tomato plants with a few cucumbers.  He loves home grown tomatoes and will have (too) many to eat and will end up  having to share.

And then I have a  crazy  Blue Jay  that is always stalking me and doesn’t even bother to get spooked  when I’m walking in my garden.

Spring is really here! ❤️💜❤️💜

My winter flowers.  One of the Paper White Flowers has it’s own little face which is a little scary.


Some of my plants are still showing some blooms although they suffered through one of the hottest summers we’ve had here in the valley, and they also had to deal with our  polluted air filled with smoke from all the California wild fires.

I’m loving the pink and blue.

Some of my roses continue to bloom and continue to receive visitors.

Right now we are enjoying some beautiful autumn weather which will make it possible for me to get out there and do some cleaning in my rustic garden.
