Blooms and a Butterfly!

This little plant was a sweet surprise. I bought one last summer and planted it. It must have self-seeded. I know it as Balloon Flower.

The Balloon Flower now opened!
I have had many Black Swallowtail and Gulf Fritillary butterflies in my garden the last few days. I managed to catch this Gulf Fritillary on a zinnia.

I made a trip to our local HEB Plus for some groceries and found this white Canna. I love the pink specks!

Ya'll Come Back!



  1. The HEB Plus sells plants? How terrific; we have one, but no plants, ours isn't Plus.
    The balloon flower is beautiful; I love blue.

  2. I love the shot of the butterfly on the zinnea. Just beautiful. I think I have balloon flower in my garden too. You know I don't even remember some of the things I planted. Now that I think about it I think it is bell flower I have. I wish they would hurry up and bloom so I can post some pictures for you to enjoy! Hugs, Loretta

  3. I love that photos of your beautiful plants.
    I wish that mine where up and blooming so that I could enjoy them.
    God bless.

  4. Girl....your pictures are SO beautiful....you should get a job at National Geographic! :)

  5. I've never seen a balloon flower, Lorilee... that's a new one for me. It's very pretty though,
    so are your butterfly friends!
