Painted lady - Vanessa cardui





We put lots of herbs in our garden to attract butterflies
and it seems to have worked !
beautiful butterflies on the chives ,
it is a real joy to see them enjoying the flowers,
and they did not mind us taking very close-up pictures of them at all.

I'm still waiting for my "butterfly attractors" to bloom :( I might have to just go out and buy some that are already bloomed and plant them. I got hummingbird feeders and have so enjoyed watching them feed.

Trudette your garden is beautiful! I have a flower garden, but don't have very many butterflies. I think next year I'll try planting some herbs as well. I always enjoy reading your blog!

Hoi,

Ik heb je blog nog niet uitgebreid bekeken, maar wat ik zo vluchtig heb gezien, is super! wat heb je de vlinder mooi gefotografeerd !
kom nog even uitgebreider terug, maar heb op het moment niet zo heel veel tijd.
Alvast een fijn weekend gewenst!
Groetjes Yvonne
