Butterfly Party in the Lavender

There's a party in my garden, and the hot spot of choice these days is the lavender bush in the west wall bed. In full bloom, the butterflies - the white kind that look like fluttering stars and produce cabbage worms galore - literally flock to the bush. It is nearly as white as it is purple these days.

Any pollinator favorites in your garden?

Don't you think your title for this post would make an excellent title for a book!!! I loved the picture and the whole thought of butterflies having a party in the lavender has put a big smile on my face!!!

I'm so glad you liked it! People stop all the time to take pictures and talk about the butterflies. It's been a wonderful thing. Even now that the blooms are finishing, they still come (the people and the butterflies) and it's so much fun.
