Sharing one of my butterfly bushes in Dustin's garden, beside the bench. Still full of blooms in the middle of September. The butterflies are not coming as often. They will all be gone soon. But the blooms are still here for now. Amazing how much is still blooming this late in the season. The rain helps as well. I will enjoy until the last bloom is gone. Also saw a bluebird earlier this morning in the yard. Made my day.

Butterflies do not live long, unfortunately and the monarchs have left for their migration.

@CarolDM It is rather sad to see the butterflies leave. Now, we can just find comfort knowing they will return.

@Corbin5 I know. Their lives are very short unfortunately except for the monarchs.

That is a beautiful bush. Maybe it will still bloom until it is getting cold.

Yes, I have noticed a drop off in the number of bees and flutterbys. Guess summer is coming to an end
