    i love plants.my grandfather has many many many many flowers and plants but i dont have too many.i consider my coop and everything around it mine and i havent planted much out there except hostas so i havent taken any pictures.my favorite plants are day lilies, hostas,dahlias,zhenas,morning glorys,elephant ears, painters pallet,and many more. i figure that just about everybody on here has a flower or many flowers somewhere on there property so i figured this will be a pretty big thread. well at least i hope so.!!!!!!!

    so come on people lets make this one of the biggest threads on BYC.. lol! hopefully we can do it. i love big threads with many replies and pictures.

    thanks. cole.

    the lady at the sale told me it was a monarch and i knew it wasn't but never saw one like it before. it was so gorgous to stand there and watch it eat the dill. [​IMG] my dh and kid's and i were in awe over how beautiful colored and unique it was. thanks so much gonna go search web for pics. love to see how pretty it will be as a butterfly. she was gonna take it back home to her gardens to release it.
