Watering the butterfly garden has been incorporated into our morning routine. We have several plants doing well and others not quite there yet.
The zinnias are the ones thriving the best. All four of the zinnias have blooms, one of them has a ton of buds that are about to bloom:
We have four Denver Daisies. Only one has a bud that looks like it is going to bloom any time now:
The four ecinacea look like something has been munching on them and they are doing well but no blooms. The pentas, however are all doing well and bloom often. This is the one that is thriving the most so far:
The Mexican butterfly weed is also doing well but no blooms. It also looks as if something is munching on them but no sign of any caterpillars…we have seen a few butterflies, though. This one looks as if there may be something soon:
The fennel is looking better. It got a little sad after we planted it and it is now standing up nicely and getting greener so while we are not worried about it (yet) it is not the prettiest of the plants. We have two butterfly bushes. The purple one blooms continuously. We’ve yet to see a bloom on the white one:
