Thanks folks. Marguerite, the lantana grows like a weed for sure, and the birds happily carry it to places I don't want it to be. But the nurseries sell it here and the professional gardeners use it for landscaping. I put it in this particular spot on purpose as did my next door neighbor, and we have been blessed with a bounty of butterflies!

Thanks Uma - I didn't realize until recently that their little bodies matched their wings! That's pretty awesome. I have a few more from October that I will try and post later. Love your cat!
