The Joys of a Butterfly Bush

Submitted by Nancy V. Knight

Today's Scrapbook Showcase features the joys of a butterfly bush. The photos were taken by Nancy V. Knight, who captured the images of the colorful creatures as they landed on a big butterfly bush (Buddleia davidii) at Asbury Place Kingsport.

Some people advise gardeners not to plant these bushes because they are not native to Tennessee, and sometimes they can be invasive. I have never had the bushes spread, but they definitely attract a lot of butterflies. All of these were taken in the last two weeks. God's masterpieces!
