Weigela

Weigelas are a favorite shrub in spring. They attract honey bees, butterflies and hummingbirds.

If I could have only two or three shrubs in my landscape Weigela would be one of them. They welcome spring with lilacs, apple blossoms and virburnums. They attract bees, butterflies and yes, hummingbirds too! They also add winter interest as well as habitat for other birds.

Beautiful banner Leon!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

Great banner and lovely images. The one with the butterfly just spells 'summer'. I could use a bit of that right about now. So thank you for sharing! I tip my hat to you.

Beautiful banner and delightful photos of the bees & butterflies as well. Thanks for sharing.
Be content moving inch by inch because, by days end, the inches, will add up to feet and yards.

Fulfilling ambitious objectives is usually done one step at a time.
