Definitely Not Defective

We got a new (first!) butterfly bush and look! It attracted a butterfly within 24 hours.

    Here in Washington they are considered a pernicious weed. :(

    That is so cool. I would love to have a butterfly garden but my garden is full of mint! The mint attracted a stray cat because it slept in it. Butterflies are so much fun to watch! :heart:

    I am sure enjoying these “new” pictures with the camera.

    We haven’t had many butterflies for several years here and no one knows why.

    Lots and lots of flowers; very few butterflies. I have to enjoy them via others pictures.

    Love the bokeh in that pic! I haven’t seen many butterflies around here…maybe I need a bush?

    I’m a bit of a lazy gardner – at the end of summer/fall I leave the old bloom spikes. Many birds will come and feed from the bushes – mostly finches – house & purple. The Gold Finches will stop by too, but they really prefer the sunflowers. :yes:

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
