Just a single mama of 4, a teacher of many, a photographer, an artist, a learner of life and trying to find my way. Flowers bring me a simple peace.

First butterfly I've seen in my garden this summer, feeding on one of my lovely dahlias. #dahlia #dahlias #yellow #butterfly #lovely #pollen #pollenators #summer #earlysummer #yellowdahlia

I saw a beautiful black one in the garden this morning. It didn't land long enough for me to snap a photo. #goals

Can't tell for sure @purplebird ...looks like one spot, that's a male. Females have 2

Zinnias and verbena are popular nectar sources for butterflies! I saw you had them on your plant list, you should be seeing more butterflies, the black one you saw was most likely a black eastern swallowtail, if you plant dill, parsley, or rue,( they are herbs), but also host plants for the swallowtails

@purplebird @treefrog44 In that case, I just saw a female. It was larger. So funny @treefrog44 , my son asked to buy dill last night. Lol. I told him no, bc we aren't making pickles this year but maybe I should reconsider!

You should! The caterpillars are so neat to watch, they go through 5 different phases... it's about a month and a half from egg to caterpillar to chrysalis to butterfly...I have pictures of some I had this spring in my garden on my garden board if you would like to check it out! :)

I will look! I have had caterpillars/ butterflies in my classroom before for my students to observe. Always a fun little project. :)
