My happy dance starts here in the butterfly garden and buddleia is the star attraction. It's commonly known as butterfly bush and has a heavenly honey-like scent.
Finally in mid-August on a sunny day with no wind or rain they came! Monarchs, a male seen in the centre and a female. They lingered for quite a while drinking the sweet nectar from the butterfly bush flowers.
Other butterflies that have visited this plant too are the cabbage white and a viceroy, copycat in colour to the monarch.
I was beginning to think the butterflies had forgotten about our garden but I'm sure the cool, rainy and windy summer weather has something to do with it.
Have the butterflies been gracing your garden?
