Butterflies and Bees

We have been neglecting the garden,
but the butterflies have not.
They are in heaven with all the color around them.
I am thinking that this is a Monarch,
but it a lot lighter in coloring
than other Monarchs around the garden.

Up close and personal, you can tell
that the Echinops are a bit weary.
However, the worker bees are happy and healthy
and quite busy out there in the garden.

The hostas are happy
and starting to bloom.
I have never seen such large leaves.
Up close and personal, this
picture brought out the lovely
shades of purples in this bloom.

Of course, the Morning Glory, can thrive
anywhere.....especially this year,
on the south side of the house.

Isn't that just the best name for a flower?
Morning Glory
love it....

The Allium is long gone, but with benign neglect,
it has become an ornamental statement
in our garden.
