Black Butterfly Bush Butterfly

After adding this second butterfly bush plant to Dustin’s garden, I have many more butterflies this year. These purple blooms are on the black butterfly bush. It is doing well and getting lots of visitors.

One of the frequent visitors is this yellow swallowtail. I also see the blue and black ones as well. I thought the yellow butterfly was really pretty with the purple blooms. These winged critters make my day, every day through the summer.

This photo is shared with Saturday Critters and Kim’s Color Crazy challenge as well. Two for one.

The little things in Dustin’s garden keep me going every single day. No matter what comes or goes, I can count on nature providing something different every day to learn and enjoy.

Enjoy nature photography. Amateur self-taught photographer and love every minute of the photos from my yard and Dustin's garden. Sunset views from my deck are very peaceful to watch, capture and share. I have two cats, Brendel and the Dude. I share both special and funny moments I capture of them with you.

Also enjoy seeing and reading your posts from all over the world.

    • Thanks, I got lucky with this one. He was going from bloom to bloom. It is called black butterfly bush but it is actually a dark burgundy, almost purple in this photo. Depends on how the light and sun hits it.

  1. What gorgeous colors in this shot. Love the butterfly and your bloom. Mine got powdery mildew and I almost lost it. It is now coming back and happy. Whew, close call. I did not enjoy my Saturday, my car wouldn’t start. Thank goodness for AAA. I needed a new battery. Not a big deal, just came at the wrong time of the month. lol.
