Taking a stroll through my garden this morning. The bluebird house is gone. But there are many other things left to see. The first thing I saw were the Japanese Honeysuckle blooms. This bush started out as a tiny vine and is now about five feet tall. I love the colors and the hummingbirds and butterflies visit as well. No maintenance at all required.
Next is my butterfly bush. It has just started growing as I have had it only a couple of years. I hope it will eventually develop into a tall round bush. For now the white blooms attract all kinds of bumble bees, butterflies and other bugs. I never know what I may see on these blooms. Today was both a bumble bee and what I think is a soldier beetle on my butterfly bush blooms. I stand corrected if anyone knows for sure. Hard to tell in this photo, I will try to get more.
And another rose of sharon bloom to end with. My three bushes continue to bloom and attract bees and butterflies. There is also a blue sky trying to shine through. Always wishing me a good morning, afternoon and evening. And I wish the same to you. Enjoy the little things nature has to offer.
Look around you,
