I planted this butterfly bush last year and this year it is really starting to grow and I love it. Apparently it’s doing it’s just because I’ve seen a monarch butterfly visiting frequently over the last week. Hooray!
And you know what else? Hooray for the weekend!
Hooray! Happy Weekend, Carole!
That is a glorious sight! Happy Weekend!!
Tasty food for pollinators! Have a great weekend!

Butterfly bushes actually DO attract butterflies of all sorts. There’s one outside the window by my knitting chair.
Lovely! Happy Weekend, Carole!!
I gasped when I saw this: lovely. I’ve noted a monarch too, in my yard…and I don’t have a butterfly bush!
Enjoy your weekend!
Ours attracts lots of butterflies too, but I needed to cut it back. These bushes can get really big (too big for our small raised bed).
Total awesomeness! Happy Friday and weekend to you Carole. Enjoy!

Oh wow- yea here’s to the weekend!
Oh yes, the butterflies love this bush. And it if it is not a dwarf bush, it will get huge. Mine died for some strange reason, but I plan to get another. And they are lovely for a landscape planting. I hope you enjoy yours for many years. Great photo!
