Outdoor Wednesday

Now that it's starting to cool off here my lantana's have gone crazy! Seriously, the one I have planted in my rock garden is out of control.

Told ya! I have a problem keeping things alive in hanging baskets so I planted lantana in them this year. EPIC fail. They died too. I'm not really sure what the problem is. Any ideas? I really like ferns in hanging baskets but I usually can't get those to live for more than a few weeks. I need help! Anyway, I'm glad the lantana on the ground are doing so well.

Saturday I noticed there was a flock of butterflies hanging out around the lantana. I know it's a plant that attracts them but I've never seen so many at once. There were at least 5 big ones & a bunch of itty bitty baby butterflies. They were so cute!

 I wasn't able to get any pics of the babies. They were moving so fast!

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I love lantana. It is hardy and does well.

  2. Hey Traci! These are some gorgeous photos girl! Those butterflies were beautiful and the colors from the flowers were amazing!

  3. I agree about the photos. They turned out great. Were they taken with the pencil camera?
