That’s so sweet – is it a butterfly house? I also tried those pretty leaves in the forefront. They came up for several years before disappearing. As I recall they had a very nice (yellow?) blossom. I really felt badly when they packed up and moved out to get away from someone who has a history of killing green things just by looking at them!
Yes, it is a butterfly house that my husband made. The plant in front is a perennial geranium. You need to channel that “look” at the weeds in your garden instead of your plants, and if it works come visit my yard. 🙂
Ah! A butterfly house is something we’ve not tried. We have butterfly bushes and flowers to attract butterflies, but not a house. You are indeed an inspiration!
I didn’t know there was such a thing as a butterfly house. And look – you also are showing a picture with hardy geranium.
We bought a butterfly house in Iowa about 15 years ago and then my husband used it as a pattern to make me a second one. We saw one butterfly last year and so far this year we haven’t seen one.
Hope they come! 🙂
I sure hope the butterflies come. I love your butterfly house although probably wouldn’t be wise in our backyard. Twursula thinks they are toys.
