What’s Fluttering In Your Garden?

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

Monarch on Penta lanceolata

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…
