June in the Butterfly Garden

My butterfly garden is full of colorful blooms and the butterflies are starting to take notice.

  1. Oh my goodness but your flowers and your feathered friends are all lovely. A couple of bloggers have those lovely Mexican Sunflowers, but our nurseries don’t sell them. I tried them from seed a couple of years ago, but they didn’t take. I think they are gorgeous so I’m glad you shared them. Lovely, bright photos. 🙂

  2. Pictures and flowers are beautiful… I too, have found butterflies and serendipitous thoughts in my garden. The close up of your butterflies are really breathtaking. Nature at its marvellous best here.

  3. Great bird photos – especially the painted bunting. We lived on St. Simons Island for 3 years and I never saw one of these. For me, this area was a birdwatcher’s paradise: sea, marsh, and land birds provided a great variety. ~James

    1. Thank you! I agree. I agree with you about the area being a birdwatcher’s paradise. There are many places to see birds all up and down the Georgia coast. We lived on St. Simons many years ago before moving a little farther up the Georgia coast. The buntings are not only beautiful to look at but entertaining to watch.
