New Butterfly Garden (pics)

I just built and started this new bed this spring in hopes of attracting tons of butterflies, birds, hummingbirds and bees.. Thought I'd share a few pics starting 4/16 when I began, up through today.. Much thanks to Cathy Brouse aka caterwallin for the seeds she generously gave to me. Also planted natives purchased at the greenhouse.. So excited everyday to go out and see how it is growing!

Thought I'd post a few pics after the garden has finally grown and flowered. Have seen a few butterflies, hummingbirds and lots of birds.. As of yet, the only butterfly pics I have captured are of this Diana Fritillary.

I feel strangely attracted to your beautiful garden. I may be part butterfly.
