Because I sit on this bench and enjoy the butterfly bushes I planted.
This is my one and only from last year. I so enjoyed all the visitors, that I went crazy and planted 7 more this spring.
I know some think they are a weed… but isn’t everything in my garden? :)
It looks so pretty against the green grass, water and sky.
There is a pink one down at the fire pit I love….
But this one is my favorite…. is it Black Knight… I think it is….
They go well with the altheas that are blooming….
Everything here is late summer blooming into fall in shades of pinks.
Most all of the shrubs are one year old, and tiny when I bought them.
But as you can see…. they are growing quickly.
It is so hard to get all of this in one shot… but it is butterfly heaven.
You can just sit on a rock and watch the show!
