A Week of Flowers 2022 – Day 4

Pink calibrachoa and eastern tiger swallowtail

I’m joining Cathy at Words and Herbs for her third annual Week of Flowers. She writes:

“Please join me in making December a bit brighter. From Wednesday, November 30th through Tuesday, December 6th, create a post. It can be one photo, or more if you like. You can post just one day or all seven. But do leave a link in the comments so that we can all see what you have found to share!”

Open to all… Let’s brighten up the blogosphere!

    This is magnificent, Eliza!

  2. Val Boyko says:

    Lovely indeed❣️

  3. Cathy says:

    Naturally the flower is lovely, but the Swallowtail is even better! I chased a couple of elusive visitors this summer, but they never settle for long enough. Great shot Eliza!

  4. Lovely flowers, but completely over-shadowed by the butterfly. Fantastic photography as usual.

  5. Well, that certainly brightened up my gray, gloomy, rainy morning!

  6. Alice says:

    Two beauties. The delicate stripes on the calibrachoa and the stripes and dots on the ‘Tiger’…amazing what grows on our 🌎

  7. Dale says:

    In this case, these beautiful flowers are the perfect backdrop for the magnificent butterfly (steals the show, I must add).

  8. Vicki says:

    Makes me think of a greeting card (in the nicest possible way). 🙂

    I do love a swallowtail of any sort, but rarely see the yellow ones. Lucky you!

    Spectacular ✨🤩😍

    Oh so cheerful to see this summery scene, Eliza. There’s nothing like a swallowtail and pink flowers to brighten up this rainy day. Thanks so much.

  12. Rosie Amber says:

    Such a pretty flower and a beautiful butterfly.

  13. Anna Higgins says:

    Simply beautiful Eliza – both bloom and butterfly which isn’t one I’d come across in my garden. Does the calibrachoa attract other pollinators?

  14. Kris P says:

    A butterfly is always a great addition to a floral pic 😉

  15. Cathy says:

    A gorgeous butterfly and pretty flowers – double joy 😍

  23. Best combination…flower and pollinator. Lovely to see, Eliza!

  24. The swallowtail’s a fine addition.
