There are plenty of butterflies as long as there are blooms.

The berries provide a native prairie

Sherry....so many butterflies. I do love your little blues, such dainty darlings....

Pretty pin, and full of sentimentality.....you do have some wonderful ideas. Where you pluck them from, I will never know.

The prairie is beautiful, I know you have taken these unspoilt spaces to your heart...

Positively, perfect P post......

Well, that was an interesting collection! Love the prairie - even though I love mountains best, and it looks flat, it's still lovely.

A fantastic post!

Pumpkins, pilgrims and prairies are all perfect for Thanksgiving. And the pretty purple plants are lovely. No wonder the butterflies flock to them. Great macros!

Preserve and Protect: two very important ideals! I am glad you fit them into your P's, but we always must remember: to strive for peace.

Great P's, Sherry. The Praire People are cute, and it good to see you butterflies. I really enjoy the swallowtails, having never seen one!

marmee said...

wonderful p's...i love that you took your dad's pencil and made a lovely brooch. was he an artist? anytime the garden has butterflies is a wonder...so glad to see yours. i noticed a few posts back your terra cotta man...i built one of those years ago in fl. i have thought about doing another one and this reminded me.
happy autumn.

Rose said...

Perfect P's, Sherry! Butterflies were prolific at your house this summer. The pipevine is one of my favorites and one of the few that actually visited me this year. The prairie holds a special place in my heart, too. Happy ABC Wednesday!
