I just can't help myself. Here's my Mexican Sunflower. I got it because it's supposed to bloom longer, for the late butterflies.

Yes, CN, the Mexican Sunflowers (Tithonia) are beautiful, and if kept deadheaded they bloom right up until frost kills them in the fall.  The butterflies and hummingbirds love them, too! We always have some come volunteer from last year's seeds. The only butterflies, other than all of the fritillaries, we have seen so far this year are the Eastern Tiger Swallowtail and the Black Swallowtail. The Monarchs don't arrive here until mid-June.

Beautiful! Thanks for the tip about deadheading. I may not have done that if not prompted. pale Also, we have had occasional frost-free winters here, so is it possible to get another year out of it?

That trillium is gorgeous.  It decided to grow in the potato patch?????
My mom has a carefully guarded spot to coax trilliums to grow in.

The apple tree is in full blossom, and it smells so sweet.

Beautiful, SR!  Our Redbuds are all done blooming, and leafing out already. They are beautiful when they bloom, though.  Ironically, we used to live near Red Bud, ILL, and there wasn't a Redbud tree in sight.  Very Happy

This picture was snapped before all the rain began, I thought it looked so pretty I better get a pic before all the petals were washed and blown away!  That’s ironic about the Illinois town???
