During the summer months it's always so relaxing to glance outdoors or to walk past and view vibrant colored flowers in our gardens. Last year the Painted Lady Butterflies visited the colorful Zinnias. These butterflies do look similar to a Monarch Butterfly, but after examining closely, a difference can be noticed. (Click on FuN Facts above.)

Sure, the seeds may be purchased in packets, but there is something very satisfying about drying, saving and then planting seeds from a crop of gorgeous flowers that you've enjoyed during the previous summer. Much like cooking healthy meals for your family to enjoy.
The seeds are in the ground and now will be watered daily. Depending on our weather, little sprouts will be coming up...soon!
I cannot wait!
The flowers are to Enjoy!
