Butterfly Bush

Before I began gardening,

I always thought the Butterfly Bush

and Lilac Bush were one of the same.

I believe the lilac blooms during the spring,

the Butterfly Bush blooms during the late spring and

continues throughout summer.

I love the mix of colors!

There’s this deep purple color….

     along with a lighter purple.

What’s your favorite color?

I added a little fresh lavender to the mix and the……

courtyard 212

fragrance was a delight to the senses.

I’m thinking these are going to be a definite on my

planting list next spring.

This photo has nothing to do with Butterfly Bushes, but

isn’t this the most adorable little dog…well almost, there’s always Albert.Smile

Anyway, as Albert and I were riding down the street, on the golf cart, at the lake cottage,

 there he was…. just sitting in this birdbath!

What a cutie!

Thanks for visiting my little blog!

I really, really do, appreciate YOU!

 

See you soon!

What happen to your refrigerator stocked with wine and liquor that you kept behind the bar?

You should do a tribute to the Capital Avenue Daycare that was in your family for 50 years or so? So sorry to see it closing!
