Flower Photo: Orange Butterfly at Meadowlark Gardens in Virginia

Orange Butterfly Photo by Aquariann

After ten years together, Ogre still gives me stomach butterflies sometimes. He also let me chase real butterflies during our anniversary vacation to Shenandoah Valley in Virginia last September. Despite their wily ways, I was able to capture several photos which I will be sharing this November.

The first beautiful butterfly was meandering through Meadowlark Gardens, which we stopped at before we even reached our resort, thanks to a recommendation by fellow flower blogger, Denise In VA. And thanks to Vilt og vakkert for helping me identify the verbena, Purpletop vervain (Verbena bonariensis), that the orange butterfly is enjoying. Anyone know the type of the butterfly?

How To Plant Your Own Post for Flower Friday:
The only rule to play is that you can only add one link per week! The post doesn't even have to mention flowers, but only ones that do will be eligible for being picked as a feature next week. I will be sharing my flower image on other blog hops, namely Wordless Wednesday, and welcome all family-friendly links from fellow bloggers. Crafters can even link up an Etsy listing or other shop product! But if you want to promote a prize, please add it to my Giveaway Chest Linky instead to entice more treasure hunters.

Please follow my blog through any of the social media icons in the upper right sidebar to receive a reminder to return next week. Adding my button or a text link to your own blog and sharing to your followers is also a fairy appreciated way to help my hop grow.
