my garden for the natives

jodikayAugust 22, 2011

Here are a couple of pictures of my native garden that has been attracting birds, bees and butterflies. It is leaning a bit due to the nasty storms that came thru in July and early August. I started this in late 2009, added to it, in stages, in 2010 and then just a few things this year. Over the weekend I watched Orioles try to land, finches, hummingbirds, lots of butterflies and when I got up close, lots of bees. I am very pleased with the results so far. Thanks for looking! And, thanks for all the help Id'ing all the new butterflies to my garden.

Beautiful. Very well put together. Wish mine was that neat.

I know what you mean about leaning. The same thing happened to my front bank garden when a wind storm blew through earlier this year.

I especially love your rock. I'm crazy about rocks.

Really nice Jodi. If I were a butterfly, I would want to live there!
