Beautiful Gulf Fritillary butterfly, Agraulis vanilliae, feeding on the Sweet Almond Bush bloom on my balcony. Even on November 28 we still need flowering nectar plants in our gardens for the butterflies to feed on.
It’s a beautiful November day here in New Orleans. Gauzy white clouds are floating through a bright blue sky. Just enough of a breeze to help the windchimes sing. And flowers in the garden enjoying the cooler weather and recent rains.
The sweet almond bush, Aloysia virgata, is in full bloom. Beautiful white panicles beckon bees, butterflies, hummingbirds, and all other pollinators with their intense almond fragrance and promise of nectar.
Dancing Girl Ginger, Globba winitii, isn’t fragrant but her gorgeous blooms more than make up for that. The breeze is just enough to make her look like she really is dancing to today’s beauty.
What’s blooming in your garden?
Happy digging in the dirt …
