Last week the zinnias got a well deserved deadheading. This week they’re showing that they are, indeed, grateful for the attention. If you are a butterfly, you are very grateful for this service.
Aside from just being delightful to look at and the cheerful bouquets Patrick has kept covering the kitchen counters this summer, the zinnias have been the butterfly capital of our property. Even more so than the butterfly weed. So, go figure.
