Warm November Looks Like Springtime

Zinnia, Cosmos, and Achillea

An unusually warm November has kept the flowers blooming in the Labyrinth Garden.  My achillea had stopped blooming in the heat of summer, but bloomed once the temperatures cooled up enough.

Butterflies, hummingbirds, bees, cardinals, blujays, and sparrows frequently visit the Labyrinth Garden.  I love it when they come and stay for awhile.  A pair of predominantly orange butterflies have been visiting for about a week now.  I hadn’t been able to catch them on camera, so I finally just took the camera outside, turned it on, and said “Would you please come over here and be still so I can take your picture?”  One of them did.
