Coco Kitty and the Window
On a whim earlier in the summer I bought a packet of seeds. I tossed them behind some low bushes in front of the dining room window. There were some zinnias, some cosmos and something called a Mexican Sunflower. The Mexican Sunflower was a huge success in more ways than one.
First of all it's tall, probably almost 6 feet tall, so we can easily see the flowers through the window. Second of all, the monarch butterflies love it!! I took some photos, and I'll share them on a garden post.
Coco Kitty Butterfly Watching
The kitty cats love it as much as we do. They can sit on the table by the window and watch the butterflies. We've also seen the hummingbirds stopping by for a bit of nectar and the flowers are almost always covered in bumble bees.
Did you see my Native Plant Garden Post earlier in the week? I was so inspired by the garden tour that I joined our local nature center and will be going to their native plant sale next weekend! We really plan on turning our wooded area of our yard into a more controlled natural area. Of course, it's too crazy hot to even think about doing any of it now.
Once it cools off we'll get out their and plan some paths and some garden islands.
Hope everyone is staying safe with the hurricane!
