Plant it, They Will Come

Monarch butterfly spreads wings atop a magenta zinnia flower amidst other red and yellow flowers with greenery

Location: Howe neighborhood

Our yard is full of colorful zinnia and various yellow flowers, attracting many butterflies, flies, bees, other insects and birds. Each one gets something to take with it on its visit be it pollen, seed, or nesting material. Easy to grow from seed and so cheerful.
