Butterflies Mating, Flowers and an Inch Worm!

Hubby helping me out with the watering....then it rained when we finished!! Love that Florida weather.
My Bromeliad is starting to bloom again.

This Gerbera Daisy is not going to be the normal shape.


My husband spotted this Inch worm on the porch......Way Cool!! (just for you Kris)








Purslane





Butterfly mating dance....was so cool!
























































Not sure if you can tell, but this is both of the butterflies.


























The best husband in the world and his parents.














Our ever changing sky.


















































And..this furry worm sitting on the antenna of the radio.

Great pictures today. I've never seen the butterfly mating dance before, quite interesting. lol I don't know why Gerbera's flowers get distorted sometimes. My grandmother had one that grew two on the same stem.

Darla: What a great series of photos. You did a nice job on them all. Loved the inchworm
There are so many varieties of Sedum it is amazing. you ought to do a search to just see the how many.

Hi Darla, I see I am right behind my sister Marmee here. That happens a lot these days now that she is blogging too.

Do you know the name of that Bromeliad? I have lots of it but don't know the name. Aren't they wonderful bloomers? all year long.
I've been seeing a lot of that dancing mating dance these days... and they hang out in the lawn for the longest time.

Great pictures! Loved the butterflies and the inchworm! I love all the comments about best husbands...that's sweet. Glad to know strong marriages are alive and well! I'm so thankful for mine--coming up on 40 years! (So, as you may guess, he's a sweetie, too!)
