Queen Butterfly

Queen Butterfly, Danaus gilippus, and Gregg's Mistflower, Conoclinium greggii .


  1. I'm echoing the others--gorgeous!

    I don't have many Gregg's mist flowers for the queens this year. The deer are eating them, a measure of how bad the drought is.

  2. Yesterday and today have been unbelievably hot and humid. Most unusual for the shore of Lake Michigan. Since it is way to hot to work in the Gardens at Waters East, it is a good time to catch up on your Blog and other Blogs I am following. The Queen Butterfly was beautiful. Butterflies add so much to the life of a garden. In a previous post (March 2011) I wrote about how at Gardens at Waters East we try to encourage butterflies with the right plants etc. They are here lots! Which I like. Jack
