Hi everyone! It’s Walter here. Sorry we haven’t posted much. Our only excuse is a lazy secretary.

We need to get better help if we want to post more often. BOL!

Today I want to show you some butterflies. They sure do love our Blue Fortune Agastache.

I hope you enjoyed a look at a couple of the butterflies in our yard this week.

Hi everyone! It’s Cindy here again. Last week I showed you some of the smaller creatures that enjoy our sedum. Today I’ll show you some butterflies that also enjoy the nectar from the sedum.

Eastern Tiger Swallowtail

This eastern tiger swallowtail is looking quite beat up at this point in the summer.

Giant Swallowtail Butterfly

It’s difficult to photograph the giant swallowtail as they are in constant motion. You will see what I mean in the video below.

Monarch Butterfly

This monarch butterfly had to share this sedum with some other insects.

If you can’t see the video you can go here to view it.

The butterflies have also been enjoying the Joe Pye weed, which isn’t a weed in our garden but a perennial that we planted (there is a native variety that does grow as a weed in our area too).
