What’s Fluttering In Your Garden?

I’m seeing more and more butterflies in the garden now that the days are consistently warm.

Plant passion vine for the Gulf Frittilaries

Passiflora ssp.

I plant passion vine in a container to keep it from wondering into spaces where it is not welcome. It grows and blooms profusely all summer long and into the fall- seems to be very happy couped up in a pot and the frits love it!

The swallowtails love fennel and parsley…

Plant a way station of milkweed for the migrating monarchs…

Anything fluttering in your garden?

Hoping to have lots of larvae images next post…
