Morning beauty...

The Morning Glories have taken over! They really are beautiful. Julie loves the Morning Glories and then she says, "Oh, that's right. You don't like them, do you?" I try to convince her that I do like them or else I would not have planted them in the first place! I have just been hoping that they would stay in one little corner, but that is simply not their nature. So, as a result, I have this lovely picture of my Morning Glories this morning. The feathery vine is Cypress Vine and the red is Bat-faced Cuphea.

Usually pictures of butterflies are of the very colorful tops of their wings. Here the underside of the wings of a Swallowtail breakfasting on my 'Nanho Blue' Buddleia. (Yes, I know. I said that name backwards. I always do.) The underside of the wings is amazing, too; it is just more pale. I love the beauty of the intricate markings.

Have a beautiful day!
