Garden of common butterflies and birds
Salvia uliginosa has finally started to bloom. I go back and forth with this plant. It needs to be watered which I don't like to do. So I planted it next to the birdbath. That way it gets watered every day when I slosh out the water in the birdbath.
Technically, I suppose this is the better picture.
You knew there would be a picture of Senecio cristobalensis. Let's get it out of the way.
Some day, a long time from now, Kalanchoe beharensis will grow as tall. Until then, it lives in small pots and gets moved around.
Dahlias are getting moldy now. Enjoy them while you can.
Vanessa atalanta landing on my shorts was cute.
We have a lot of that butterfly, but we have a lot more cabbage whites.
The white wings signify the presence of uric acid
So birds do not eat them.
Hummingbirds don't worry about such things.
The ground reclaimed from the bamboo will be much more respectable after a good mulching.
I still don't have any place in mind for the Cordyline 'Cherry Sensation', but it definitely will not go there.
I don't think it goes with the colocasia.
