Spring is blooming into summer!

This year I decided to put in a butterfly garden and so far am very pleased.  I still have a few things to get and plant.  I will be adding a few landscaping rocks for the butterflies to sun themselves and have a few more plants to get.

Included in this garden is Butterfly Bush, Elijah Blue Fescue, Russian Sage, lavender, Bee Balm, Stonecrop, flat leaf parsley, Red Fox, Lobelia, Purple Coneflower, Loosestrife, and Coreopsis.

This photo really doesn't show the beautiful blooms, but to look out the windows and see the butterflies fluttering through the plants is very calming during stressful moments for me.  

This is the first real garden I have even attempted and have to say I can see why people love to garden.


  1. Lovely - looks so calm and serene!

  2. You did a wonderful job on the garden! Thank you for sharing but wouldn't a nice chair and small table look good nearby for some afternoon stitching?

  3. Looks beautiful. You have a lovely selection of plants. Just be careful of the loosestrife. It can spread and take over.

  4. Very nice - now you're addicted. It will grow through the years, or there will be others! Enjoy!!
