October Blooms

Have you ever heard of a butterfly bush? It's a really pretty shrub, with beautiful blossoms, that attracts butterflies! 

My mom planted a butterfly bush in her backyard a couple of years ago and this past summer, we really got to enjoy it. I can't even begin to describe how magical it is to sit outside on a warm summer day, and watch butterflies and (hummingbirds!) dance around the bush. 

Unfortunately all of the pretty little ivory blooms died in early September before I could get a photo to share with you. 

But then we got a nice little surprise a few weeks ago, when her lovely butterfly bush started blooming again!

I don't know if it was because of the string of warm days we had, or if it is typical with this kind of plant, but it was such a delightful surprise to see unexpected blooms. I love a little dose of Spring in the Fall!

Interested in adding a butterfly bush to your garden? Here is some helpful information…and don't forget to send us your photos!
