Mary told me about Monarch migration this summer. I photographed (shot didn’t sound correct) this Monarch in a planter at OSU stadium. Tonight I emailed several pleas for plant identification and Master Gardener Liz R was the first to respond, THANKS Liz. Today is Marlene’s(Mark’s MIL) birthday(having cake at Aunt Linda’s tonight). September 3rd, 1912 was my mother’s birthday, born in Durand Illinois, now passed a decade ago. My mother loved butterflies and always planted a beautiful garden, including buddleia to attract the butterflies. The pentas seem to be doing just that. Hummingbirds love them according to what I read. Lots of parentheses in this post.
