Birds and Butterflies and an Special Bonus in the Herb Garden!

One of My Favorites, a Goldfinch on the Sunflower (Edible)!
A Swallowtail Butterfly on the Butterfly Bush (Flower Not Edible)!
'Brother Cadfael' (Edible) The Gift That Keeps on Giving!
I seem to be taking good photos of the birds in the herb garden.  The Herbal Husband has been working on the bees and butterflies!  I think it is a very good combination.  He found another 'Brother Cadfael' the other night and cut it for me before the Japanese beetles got it!  Sometimes this rose doesn't open well when cut early, but this one worked!  The fragrance is wonderful!  It reminds me of why we both garden.  Hopefully you are having a great day in your garden whether it be herbal or not!  Got to run.  To the garden!  Talk to you later.

Great photos!!! All three are beauties. I really need to plant more roses. I miss the ones that didn't survive the winter this year.... they were very old and so spoiled by our soft winters of the past 10 years.

Thanks Carol. I also lost some old favorites as well! xo

Hi Susanne, you are very welcome! I just need to quit working so hard and get my camera and enjoy the garden more! xo

Thanks for stopping by ladies.

I love the rose! the Cadfael series is a favorite of mine and I didn't know there was a rose named after him

Thanks Linda. The Brother blooms sporadically throughout the season. We just have to keep the Japanese beetles at bay! Hope you're having a great day! Thanks as always for stopping by! xo
