Oh PAM!!! WHAT A BEAUTY!!!! We both saw this butterfly for the first time this year!!! They are so small and so incredibly beautiful with their darling tail bits on the wingies! Great job, this is so pretty!

HEY! What are those flowers??! I'll trade you some Common Milkweed seeds for some of those! :D LOL, I'll also be sending you some seeds for the perennial Henderson's Shooting Star! (It does love a wet spring, but you can see if it will make it! Our entire hill is COVERED with them in the springtime! www.ipernity.com/search/photo?q=henderson%27s+shooting+star&w=0&t=0&lic=&s=0

It was SO good to see any butterflies this year.. but a new one for me !!!!

The Shooting Stars are beautiful !!! I can try it.. this year they would have made it.. the past 7... doubtful. Can try ! Can try the Milkweed too !

These are "false sunflowers' I just call them sunflowers. They literally grow here everywhere. Like weeds ! Even in drought. I will get some seedheads and send with the others.. they are tinyyyyyy !

Forgot to add... once you have them they spread everywhere... but here it isnt a problem.. and frankly so little gets through the droughts.. I am glad of anything. These self seed once they get going.

Simply beautiful. We don't get many species in our cool, windy garden near top of long hils so I too get very excited when a different species from the usual suddenly appears.
