Butterfly Bush


My daddy has always had a green thumb.  Me not so much.  In college he brought me a baby banana tree luckily my roommate took care of it.  He fixed us these really cute hanging pots for our front porch.  They were pretty for about a week.  Then they died.  I either water them to much or not enough.  Well when Patick and I got married dad thought we needed some trees in our yard (which we did).  He came and planted three beautiful trees and two butterfly bushes.  Well two of the three trees are no longer with us but the butterfly bushes are.  This week they have been COVERED with butterflys! They are so pretty!

Thank you Daddy for our beautiful bushes.

I think the butterfly bushes are fascinating. It is so cool to just sit and watch the butterflies flit around on them.

That was very nice of your Dad.

We had a butterfly bush at our old house - I miss it so much!

Beautiful pics of the butterfly bushes. I can totally relate to the dying plants. I'm surrounded by florists and people who garden. Me? Can't tell a weed from the grass....
