Garden Friends

This is the first year we have had zinnias in the front yard. It turns out that the butterflies love them! Yesterday we had a monarch and a zebra butterfly drinking from the flowers--the perched on the petals and went around the flower sipping from each of the little yellow inner flowers (oh, dear! My plant parts vocabulary is significantly lacking!).

Today these two beauties were out and about. I don't know the names of the butterflies, but they are beautiful to watch! We may need to plant zinnias more often!

Sulfur butterfly, and Tiger Swallowtail (one of my all time favorites)
