a garden update

May 07 2014 009

today i chose to focus on the hibiscus

as well as the butterflies and the birds who visit our garden

we do not have that many different kinds of butterflies but the monarchs and the zebra swallowtails like it here

and so does the cardinal couple (did you know they mate for life?) and the bluejays

joining Annie with how does your garden grow?
