I really did intend to keep up with this blog but summer was even harder than I expected it would be. This summer has been better than last year a bit cooler but still dry. I did loose several plants when we got too much rain in just a few days time, I do have some drainage issues to deal with. Most plants don't like to sit in water for very long.
I have had far fewer butterflies this summer too despite having lots of nectar and host plants. I hope their numbers are better next year.
