Yesterday, we went to our favorite State Park to see how much damage was done my the Missouri River flooding. I will show comparison photos another time. There was only one 'non wildflower' that was blooming.
This beautiful Hibiscus in the center of a planter full of Mums that hadn't bloomed yet ~
There were many wildflowers that were still going strong, in spite of the flooding ~
And this lonely soldier standing all by it's self on the side of the Cave ~
There were still a lot of butterflies feeding on the flowers. I was surprised at how much bigger the Monarchs were than the ones I have in my yard.
This butterfly was enjoying the abundant flood waters still in the park. We thought it was an interesting one, because it was so long legged and so pretty - being yellow on the underside with the colors reversed on the top.
Thanks again to Jean for hostessing Bloomin' Tuesday. Click on the link and visit some other gardens from other parts of the country.
