Darla, you should plant some Maypop. It has beautiful flowers, and the added benefit of being a host plant for the Gulf Fritillary.

Threecollie, I've been doing it a couple years now and I'm still amazed with the little buggers.

Susan, my favorite part is that peachy blush on the wings. So pretty.

That's a taste of things to come. Cypress are already leafing out down here in south Florida.

Dani said...

Chickory, that's so cool! I need to come up with something like that.

Lisa, you're such a great Mommy! I hope you had a wonderful birthday.

Thanks Fishy. Cool Mute Monday you did yesterday.

Robert, not much longer now! Yippee!

Wow! Even here I won't see that for awhile.

Dani said...

FC, I hadn't seen them for awhile either and then last week before the cold, I noticed a bunch of them on the Maypop. Glad I saw them in time to bring them in the house.
