Day 289 Signs of Fall

The Monarch Butterfly is attracted to the fluffy, purple, flower spikes of the Liatris, also known as Blazing Star, Gayfeather and Snakeroot. It's a Texas native fall perennial that  grows all over the pasture, but I can't get it to live in my flowerbed.

  2. I have a purple spikey flower growing but it is Anise in my herb garden the stem is straight but the flower looks kind of like it. Love the butterfly! I keep seeing them flitting across the road with the leaves lately wondering why they are so late heading south.
