I discovered something this week that I just have to share with you! But first - when I went out this morning to photograph my find, I saw a black swallowtail butterfly! He - or she - sure was hard to get a picture of, but I did manage to get this one of the butterfly on one of my Morning Glory blossoms.
Now, back to my wonderful discovery!
A Johnnie has reseeded itself in one of my pots and is blooming! In July!
The pot that the charming little Johnnie is in holds a Bat-Faced Cuphea.
I love Bat-Faced Cupheas!
As you have probably noticed from photographs on my blog, I'm not really into red flowers. But I started growing Bat-Faced Cupheas several years ago because the hummingbirds like them.
Now I seek them out because they are so unusual and I like them! (Can you see the bat face?)
Have a beautiful day!
