Short But Sweet

 The butterfly bush is finally blooming.
The late frosts and freezes this past spring stunted its start.  It is much shorter than usual.


However, it has the biggest bloom clusters its ever grown.


I'm always amazed at how many tiny flowers make up each 'bloom.'

  1. It's pretty and my favorite color. A friend gave us a pink one but our rain this summer has not allowed it to grow very big.

  6. Our weird Spring has brought about many changes in our yard as well. These 'blossoms' are beautiful.

  8. They are beautiful aren't they, your one especially. The cold start is so often beneficial to plants in the long run. Have a good week.

  14. It's beautiful, nice that it is scented and that butterflies love it. This is not hardy where I live, I've never seen one until now.
