We’ve had some cool, dreary days but today the sunshine and butterflies returned!
Larkspur,lantana and mistflower
Fall blooming flowers bring butterflies to my yard!
The butterfly counts not months but moments, and has time enough.
With a winter storm bearing down on North Dallas, here are a few photos from last weekend. In a couple of days, everything will be dying back or frozen until next spring!
Stepped outside to capture some shots of flowers and hopefully butterflies on my Copper Canyon Daisies, but I didn’t spy any! I did find lots of bees and other insects enjoying the Mistflowers. We had an early freeze this week, but it wasn’t long enough to damage these flowers! Turks Cap is also still in bloom. An extra special treat was discovering 2 yellow roses. One in bloom and the other still a rosebud.
We still have not had a hard freeze, so it still looks like late summer in our backyard! Since winter is coming, I will be sharing some photos taken during the summer and fall. First shown are the delicate mistflowers and second are the pentas. Both are great nectar plants for butterflies and bees and other nectar loving insects!
