This beautiful purple flower is blooming all over my passion vine right now. It is a host for zebra caterpillars and another orange caterpillar which I don’t remember the name( not monarchs).
A friend of mine on Facebook, Anya Nadal an artist and she absolutely loved a picture that I posted. So I told her that I would take more pictures so she can create a painting. Hence this is why I am creating this set.
I took over a 100 pictures this past week to capture the essence. Some are repetitive, but I wanted to make sure the artist got enough details. Hope you enjoy.
The pictures with the red flowers are fire bush which is a separate plant that is nectar for bees and butterflies. The passion vine is a host where the butterflies lay their eggs for the caterpillars to grow to prepare to become a chryssalis and then emerge as a beautiful butterfly.
