In the Garden

I took these photos in our garden a couple of days ago. Most of our plants are perennials and do not require much extra attention.

Clematis (clematis alba)

Maltese cross (lychnis chalcedonica)

Snapdragons (antirrhinum)

We call them sun roses or primroses.

Geraniums (pelargonium)

Sweet William (dianthus barbatus)


Milkweed (asclepias)

On these leaves monarch butterflies will lay eggs which we will harvest, hatch and care for until the new butterflies emerge from their chrysalises. Our goal this year is to hatch 4 butterflies. I've already harvested 2 eggs.
