Butterfly Bush

I guess this is the reason they call it the “Butterfly Bush.”  These two guys really seemed to like it.



A few of the flowers that are blooming right now.




The garden is done.  The weeds grew better than the plants, and the high temperatures didn’t help any.  We still have some Jalapenos and green peppers, but everything else is pretty much fizzled.  We just didn’t have the desire to mess with it this year.  We may try to plant a fall garden.  I would like some more snow peas.  The ones we planted in the spring got burned by the heat.  We planted them too late.  Al may come from a family of North Dakota farmers, but I don’t believe it rubbed off on him!

We do have a pear tree that we’re waiting to ripen.  Yum..

Beautiful pics!! Love the butterfly picturs. You flowers are so pretty...such bright colors!

It is not easy growing a garden in Georgia. Lots of heat and lack of rain will do it in quickly.

Take care!

Gardening ere has never worked well. If the deer don't eat it, the gophers do or the summer without rain puts it under.

We gardened in Wisconsin and Texas. I just let nature have it's way here.

(Almost, I planted some ivy yesterday, a native that I just pulled up from one place and set to grow in another.)
