  1. I didn’t realize there was a reddish porterweed. Mine is purple. Enjoyed all your flowers.

    The butterfly on red Pentas is a Spicebush Swallowtail. I think the one on Pride of Barbados is a Palamedes Swallowtail. I have to look them up from year to year to make sure I get the different ones right if they’re not obvious, like a male Tiger Swallowtail.

  3. Love the butterfly…I have yet to see one like that….
