wanted to share some shots i took of visitors to my butterfly garden under construction from 2014. Didn't really see a post for just sharing general pics so figured i'd just start this one. The monthly threads are great btw plantladylin!

sadly over the past 2-3 years I've only seen one monarch any where in CT, was happy to see it in my garden of all places! I can't find the pic at this moment, I'm a house painter so i'm outside at many different houses and its sad how few monarchs are around.

Oh really jaym, you should re-post these to the butterfly thread -- they are wonderful!

S'allright. No moderator for this forum. In that case, it's Dave & Trish but it's no big deal Jason so don't worry about it. That was a lot of photos to upload though & you did it 3 times! Oh what a night eh? I've had those kind of nights before -- I think we all have. Whistling
