I've already planted a butterfly bush, purple cone flower, cosmos and butterfly weed. In the spring I plan to add cannas and cleome. I should see a humming bird or two as well with this Smörgåsbord.

You could also add some Bee Balm (Monarda) if you have room Kmccue. I have a lot of butterflies which like the Bee Balm.

Excellent photo! Just a little sharpening in photoshop would bring out the details even more. Beautiful flutterby.

Your butterfly-photos are so very good. How come, they stay sitting?
