I have a patch of milkweed growing in the backyard. I love the smell of it when it blooms and I like to watch the butterflies stop by for a taste.
The goldenrod in blooming and the butterflies and bees are enjoying it. I just like to look at the flowers but I think they must be tasty because they do attract a lot of attention.
This is one of the views from lilydale regional park on a warm sunday afternoon.
Oh look a butterfly. They are fun to watch in the garden.
The flowers in the picture are considered weeds and are growing where my flower bed used to be. It is still summer and the weather should hold for at least another month. There are so many places to do and things to see . . .
