As the weather cools and the summer growing season ends, I have been evaluating my garden to see what changes I will make for next year. There are hits and misses- one whole bed will have to be rethought :(- but one thing I did well was attracting butterflies. I planted lots of zinnias throughout the garden in hopes of attracting more butterflies and hummingbirds to my garden. The hummingbirds didn’t flock to the red ones like I had hoped, but butterflies showed up by the hundreds! Zinnias of different colors, long stemmed, the dwarf varieties- it doesn’t matter- they just can’t resist them! These will probably be the last butterfly pictures of the year, temperatures are supposed to drop into the 50s at night this week!
I love this one’s zebra striped antennas, very stylish!
Hope your week goes well!
