Our good friend Rachel @Raelove has issued us a challenge. It is a challenge to brighten up a gloomy day which we are experiencing a lot lately. If you have some colorful flowers in your photo arsenal, please be kind enough to share some with us. It will all makes us happier to see some colors instead of just drab. Here is my contribution for today. Is it colorful enough? @Raelove

This sounds like fun! I love this picture, I like the contrast of the colour of the flower bloom and the colour of the butterfly. And these flowers grow so easily.

@sueznewz2 The monarch butterflies stop here (because of the plants that we have in the gardens) on their annual migration to Mexico each year. They are around for about ten days and they are so beautiful. When you step out into the back yard and see them fluttering about everywhere you think you're dreaming, so it was hard to take a picture during that timeframe without a butterfly or two in it!

We have a big plant of these in the front garden of our house. It was there when we moved in more than 40 years ago. It's still going strong.

Im more interested in growin some house plants but one time one of my moms friends deliver a small port of flower and i planted it in some plant. I ask mom if that's gonna grow but she told me its impossible because there was no root.

I love those day lilies. And the green looks great after the blooms are done.
