Remember that when you leave this Earth, you can take with you nothing that you have received, only what you have given, a full heart enriched by honest service, love, sacrifice and courage. -St. Francis of Assisi

Prairie Flowers

Pictures from my front yard

I planted these perennial flowers more than 5 years ago
Each year they go to seed and more plants appear each year.
I have transplanted some to the backyard,
these plants are hardy and I do not water them.

 The butterflies do not look real, but they are.


  1. They look like cone flowers. The butterflies look beautifully real. I'll bet you have a nice yard that will help sell your home quickly.

  2. Cone flowers have always been one of my favories & those Butterflies do look real to me:))

  3. nice shots of the butterflies!!..

  4. Great shots, Teri! I love butterflies-so peaceful to just fly around all day long!

  5. I love your flowers. I wonder if I plant some up here they will make it over the winter and come back in spring. If they can draw butterflies I will give it a try. The butterflies are beautiful.
