Just hatched this morning - on my Barbados cherry bush - the longwings are all around it because I allowed wild passion vine to grow up into it�.

Carol - great picture! I wonder if I could grow some passion vine in the bamboo?

Silvia - how to you keep PM out of your zinnias, mine are always trashed by now because I'm surrounded by water = humidity = PM on zinnias, and I don't want to treat them with anything that may do in the butterflies :-(


RE: Good Morning!

Beautiful photos!

Carol- it is amazing how much detail of the butterfly was captured. :)

Hi Tom

I don't spray anything in the garden when is this hot, when the plants don't look good anymore I take them out. I check daily for signs of trouble in the garden.


RE: Good Morning!

Thanks for the nice compliments on the photo - & those zinnias are lovely! Silvia has the magic touch for sure
