I posted these photos a couple of days ago but thought I would join Tootsie for Flaunt Your Flowers Fertilizer Friday & Cindy for Show and Tell Friday - not that my yard is so beautiful but my guests sure are.
Now don't be disappointed.........it isn't a tablescape with dishes, plates, and oh lala stuff. What it IS - a tablescape that a butterfly would use. I just can't get enough of watching all the butterflies enjoy the purple cone flower in the garden. Silly stuff is really taking over but who cares as along as the butterflies have a table to sit down to and suck that sweet nectar.
This is the table that the butterflies are so enjoying in my yard. No fancy table cloths, or silverware. Just the sweet, sweet flowers blooming in the bed.
I am just so amazed at the markings on this butterfly and the little white dots on the head and body. There must be a dozen or more at one time darting around in the flower bed.
And this old guy, I bet he was a beaut when he was younger - that would be before he lost part of his wing. However it didn't seem to bother him, he kept up with the best of them.
Each butterfly is just a little different.
This little guy was so much smaller and more delicate - there were a lot of these little ones flipping around too.
I wish I knew more about them, what they are called but I don't. This little guy has what looks like two eyes on his wings. I am guessing for protection.
And yet another one that is just a wee bit different than the old guys who was missing a chunk from his wing. So if anyone knows anything about butterflies I would love to hear what kind I have flitting around my garden.
