Late Summer Blooms

The B Garden is in a yellow phase right now, but the zinneas and a volunteer cosmos are keeping things colorful.  I'm starting to see a few monarchs and and few swallowtails.  I haven't seen any caterpillar activity, but maybe soon.  

I'm not sure what I'm going to do with the caterpillars this year.  I feel like most of them, maybe all of them, were predated last summer.  I'm thinking about putting the nursery back in play this year.  I'd rather they lived a natural life, but if they don't make it to maturity, that's not helping anything :-/.

While we think on things, here's a fun new puzzle :-).

We had a few Monarchs but not many. I have a nice stand of Milkweed this year too. I think I need to get a little butterfly tent and help them out. :)
