Happy October 1st
I have three Mexican Sunflower plants that self-sowed themselves in the garden.
A wonderful attractor for bees, butterflies, hummingbirds and finches.
Here are two of them.
The finches love the leaves. It is like a salad to them.
So I will be seeing a lot of the leaves with holes in them.
On one of my Pincushion plants, praying mantis. I have spotted three so far in the garden.
I do not know the name of this winged little one. "Common Southern California butterfly" Was all I could find for now. If anyone knows, please let me know. But it was enjoying the white Pincushion flowers along the parkway.
Hubby and I scatted a couple of years ago a seed packet called, "Bring home the butterflies".
The seed packet came from Botanical Interests
