Monarch with torn wings
Monarch butterflies are on their way south!
Late September in my gardens
Frost has landed on parts of East Gwillimbury but so far my yard is frost free. Blossoms still brighten my gardens, and a few monarchs and other butterflies are still stopping by my butterfly bush (Buddleia) as you can see in the largest square.
Moving clockwise: hydrangea, sedum, Japanese anemone, rose and coreopsis.
