Butterflies are attracted to the colors red, yellow, pink, purple and orange!

The Butterfly Bush is the perfect way to bring them in.

Loss or opportunity in the garden?

Loss or opportunity in the garden?

I spent the day dodging rain showers and digging up the remains of perennials that did not survive. Perhaps the long Winter, last years lack of rain, disease?
This Butterfly Bush will not bloom in front of Rabbit Run Cottage this Summer to attract Swallowtails….
I think a visit to the garden center just over in the next little town is in order. I have some spots opened up in the garden.
What a great opportunity!

A member of the Mint family–it is trying to take over my perennial bed!
I will take the spade shovel to it this Spring–divide and share!
