Janey- I'm a little freakish about moths aswell, but these guys are so small and pretty they don't bug me. Thanks for the compliment :)

Hi Jacque- Thanks.
I've been seeing the swallowtails fly by...but they don't land when I'm around!! I've been looking for plants that attract butterflies, but I haven't found any on my list...yet.
These two moths were very busy around the lavender yesterday :)

Sounds great watching the Swallowtails Tasteyg good luck in getting a pic of them :)Finding Plants 2 attract butterflys should be easy? Let me know the search goes ok :)

I thought so too Jacque! I have a short list: Aster, Sea Holly, Bee Balm, Yarrow, and Rudbeckia. I have some butterfly attracting plants already like Columbine, Lilac, English Lavender...but they are done blooming for now. My Shasta Daisy, Cone flower and Passion vine are in bloom now, but no takers.
I see the Swallowtails when I'm in the house, through the window...I run out with the camera and they flutter off and I say, Damn!

Tasteyg,
For attracting butterfly, you might try the Butterfly Plant - Buddleia Davidii. I have several and the butterflies and hummingbirds just love 'em.

Thanks for the tip, but they get pretty big don't they?

Yes if you let them. But they can be kept to a more compact size if they are pruned down to the ground in spring before new growth begins.

Think this is a Fiery Skipper Tasteyg, theres a great site, Native American Butterflies where you can see the pics of them all.
