    Hey, all! I’m writing a blog post for Birds & Blooms for this weekend about my favorite butterfly flowers to start from seed. I’d like to feature some of your photographs in my post, so if you have any photos of butterflies enjoying any of the following, please share them here and let me know how you’d like to be credited in the post for the photo (i.e., Community nickname, full name, first name and last initial, etc.).

    I’m specifically looking for photos of butterflies on

    • Zinnia
    • Cosmos
    • Salvia
    • Sunflower
    • Marigold

    If you have questions, let me know. I’ll need any photos you’d like to share by Friday at 6 p.m. (EST) Can’t wait to see what you come up with!

    I have several but none on those plants.  You interested?  Or you want to wait & see if you get enough of them on the plants listed?

    I have a few, lots more on Lantana and Butterfly Bushes, however. Maybe one of these will work for what you want on Zinnias

    Two years in a row I visited our Botanical Gardens.  They had a butterfly exhibition.  I would have replied earlier, but my photobucket is not working well.  Hope I can post some.

    Wonderful pics,  everyone!  Bf’s are hard to get a good shot of, imo!  Here is one I took but not all that great but I always liked it!
