Definitely Not Defective Jun 21 We got a new (first!) butterfly bush and look! It attracted a butterfly within 24 hours.

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: On June 21, 2010 at 1:26 am Log in to Reply glenda says: 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.

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: On June 21, 2010 at 7:50 am Log in to Reply BuckeyeGirl says: What a fantastic photo Suzanne!
