Nature: Birds, Fruit and Baby Butterflies

Tithonia, Mexican Sunflower, is so popular with butterflies and hummingbirds I wish I had more success with starting them from seed.
Some years, not one seed germinates. This year there were 4 plants from a pack of seeds started indoors and babied.







The apples were harvested today - we think they are gala but we lost the tag years before it ever produced fruit.


Tonight while watering I discovered a few Monarch butterfly babies on the Asclepias in the front walk flower bed!

The photo isn't very good but it's the best the camera could do with flash.

More garden miracles to come, I'm sure.
