A Chick Does Tropical Garden

Butterfly Frenzy!

Today my garden buddy, Rebecca, kidnapped me and took me to one of the wonderful nurseries around here -- Enchanted Gardens.  It had been a while since I had been there, and it was as great this time as I remember.  However, there was one thing that I didn't remember from my other trip out there, and that was the BUTTERFLIES!  Loads of them!  They were all frenzied around the "Blue Mist" shrubs that were in the middle of the garden.  I saw Monarchs, Queen Butterflies, Red Admirals, Viceroys, Swallowtails, Cloudless Sulphers and Gulf Frittilary.  I have never seen so many types if butterflies in one place other than the butterfly petting zoo.  It was remarkable!  I would like to share the photos I took (click on each one to enlarge):

Beautiful, Tammy! Thank you for sharing your amazing photos. I wish we had 'flutter-bys' like this at my house. The flowers won't even grow here in the PNW to attract them!
You have quite the many talents, don't you? :)
