Butterfly and Butterfly Bush

Our butterfly bush is starting to produce it’s lovely purple spikes.  It is one of my favorite plants, not only for the outstanding flowers, but also since it lives up to its name!  It draws butterflies!

Here are a few photos – I had my macro lens on at the time and didn’t have time to change.  Sometimes the butterfly bush is the focus, sometimes the butterfly!

This newcomer got into the picture!  Note the white butterfly bush spikes – we had one or two mixed in with all the purples!

I think this is my favorite photo!

What a relaxing way to spend the afternoon!  Nature is a good meditation!
