Butterflies are Free

It seems like summer is coming to an end here in Michigan, the days are getting shorter with the sun setting earlier, and the warm days are turning into cool waking hours however I still see butterflies and moths fluttering through the air.

Here are some from butterflies from our trip Up North.

Hens and Chicks-the plant type

I was surprised this summer to see stalks sprouting from my hens and chicks. I did some reserch and discovered that they do this every four years. Then, the stalk dies and new offshoots grow from the remaining plants.
