National Pollinator Week

In case you haven’t noticed it’s National Pollinator Week. Butterflies seem scarce this year in my garden so it was nice to spot a lovely male swallowtail enjoying echinacea in the side garden.

      My echinacea hasn’t been anything to write home about for several years. Suddenly it awoke this summer. I’m enjoying it along with the bees and butterflies.

    Lovely photos Susie. I just saw a Swallowtail, which is rare here, but my rapid shots with an iphone are useless! Hope we both get more butterflies this summer.

    Thanks for the reminder! I don’t grow Echinacea as it is prone to disease here, but I have lots of Rudbeckia, milkweeds, asters, and other pollinator favorites.
