What a fabulous sight Sandra I can honestly say I have only seen one Coloured butterfly and only a few cabbage whites, dont know why as I have lots of Sedums, Budleia, and Phlox;0(

18 Sep, 2010

18 Sep, 2010

 

Great Pic San,well done for capturing this.

18 Sep, 2010

 

Lovely photo there Sandra. The butterflies really do like the budleija don't they? Always wanted one in the garden but thought they were too large for a small space, then saw them advertised yesterday in the paper and these only grow to 3ft high.

19 Sep, 2010

 

glad you had a lovely day karen its raining hard here today ;o((
thanx Diydick ;o))
silverbelle i have a tall one and this year got two budlea buzz which can either go in ground or in a patio pot, so hope you get one or two, well worth it ;o))

19 Sep, 2010

Lovely shot. I have 5 different buddleias in my garden and often get clouds of butterflies.

19 Sep, 2010

 

thanx Anchorman, lovely to have the budleia and all the butterflies isnt it, makes summer special.

19 Sep, 2010

 

It does. My garden is planted particularly with butterflies and other nectar loving insects in mind. I have a substantial nettle patch in the wild part of my garden below my small plant nursery because I'm told many butterflies lay their eggs on nettles.

19 Sep, 2010

 

thats interesting i have plants from the nettle family so wonder if they lay on them to, iv had so many this year, but like you i have plants to attract, cottage garden plants ;o)
