lantana & our clouded yellow invasion

Our lantana is still blooming in spite of a recent frost . . . and it is still visited regularly by clouded yellow butterflies. In fact, this year has seen huge swarms of them --- When first seen, they appear to be small leaves drifting down from nearby trees but then they land on flowers and hold so still they make what was a shrub of red flowers change to yellow.


  1. So beautiful,love all your flower sketches... but we are having snow!

  2. This was our lantana about a week ago; now winter weather has arrived and I saw frost on my roses this morning. Not likely to see any snow though --- that is truly rare in this area. Can't say I miss it!
