September Bloom Day Complementary Colors

Today I share a few complementary colors in blooms and butterflies. The very last two orange blossoms of my daylilies stand with rosehips, jewel weed and lily-of-the-valley berries, along with purple asters which offer sweet nectar to the lovely butterflies... Orange Sulphur and American Painted Lady. The American Painted lady is also known as Vanessa virginiensis. This is my first photo ever of a painted Vanessa and I only just learned that all Vanessa butterflies migrate. To learn more about Vanessa butterflies go here . To see other gardens in bloom the world over visit May Dreams Gardens.
