    It's perching on some Wild Rosemary here in Central Texas. Can someone help identify this beauty?

    If you can find a Passionflower vine next spring, put it in your garden and you will attract more of the butterflies and their caterpillars will love it.

    Several Texans here, welcome to GardenStew.

    Linds-that was a great pic of that beautiful Fritillary Butterfly. We here in Wis. have the orange ones. That one is a stunner. Oh Yes, Welcome to the Stew. This is a fun and knowledge family from all over the world.:setc_034:
