Nice Diane! Thanks for ID'ing several of the plants. I saw them at Sabino and didn't know what the Trans Peco was....but it's a gorgeous plant. You've got some amazing shots and a butterfly I have never seen before. Thanks for sharing. Chris

Motyle piękne, kwiatki śliczne, a żaba w czerwone plamki urocza. Ostatnie zdjęcie jest świetne. Pozdrawiam.
Beautiful butterflies, beautiful flowers, and a red dot frog cute. Last photo is great. Yours.

Lovely photos today.
I have never seen so many butterflies. They are always fluttering around my yard this year.
I love the Trans Pecos Morning Glory. The leaf shape is wonderful too.
I wonder if "Natives Seed" has some seed packets to sell. I would love that plant on one of my walls.

You always have the best moon photos. In my photos the moon is always so small.

cheers, parsnip

Your world seems to be springing to life as ours is winding down, heading to winter.
It is in winter I envy you your desert home.

Magpie said...

You should do photo walkabouts or whatever one calls them where people pay money to walk around with you and take pictures! I mean really. You take some of the most amazing photos. I'm with the majority and love the Trans-Pecos! Beautifully delicate.

Those butterflies are so marvellous... There are few that we do have in France too, but I don't know most of them, and it is real pleasure to discover them.

Don't eat the Morning glory !!! :D
