Butterfly Garden

When we were picking out flowers for our backyard, we looked at anything that was colorful in the hopes of attracting butterflies and hummingbirds. Our backyard is still not finished because we ran out of money, but the flowers and plants that we bought in the spring seem to be doing pretty well even in our 100+ temps this summer.

I don't remember what this plant is called, but it has spread to be about five times the size it was when we planted it, and this butterfly seems to like it.

And, in other backyard news, the dove is still patiently sitting on her nest.
