Butterflies In Flight
Just to give you an idea at how many butterflies visit my
flowers, I took this picture this morning, July 5, 2003.
Re: Butterflies In Flight

(nice dahlias also ;-) )
Re: Butterflies In Flight
Hi, I live now in the South East Of Georgia, USA, and the
flowers you are looking at are not "Dahlias":-\, they are
Re: Butterflies In Flight
Hi, :-), this one is for you bd. Another one of my
butterflies in flight, which is not easy for me to do. I
can get them much better when they are sitting still on a
flower. Thanks for your compliment on my flowers and
butterflies. I used to have lots of Dahlias, when I was
living in my home country Germany. Now I grow all kinds of
interesting plants, that I never even dreamt of having and
that in the outside! I love it here!:-D Simply amazing!
Re: Butterflies In Flight
Very nice pictures. You are right, butterflies flying it's
not so easy to take. I have some butterflies on flower, but
not in flight.


Re: Butterflies In Flight

are there much other varities of plants in the usa than in
Germany ?
Re: Butterflies In Flight
Hi bd,
I would say they are. Take the Okra for instance. I didn't
know what that was until I got here. Do you see us grow
cotton in Germany, not hardly, there is cotton fields all
around here. A lot of the flowers that we have at inside
plants in Germany, we grow them on the outside here. For
example I have to date palm trees growing in my front yard
with dates almost ripe. I will have to take some pictures
for you. The Azalea bushes are giants here, flowers glorious
in the spring outside. I got white, red and pink ones myself
in the yard. My rosebush, a climbing rose just about blooms
all year round, not just in July. We have hardly ever snow,
last year was a little different though, much colder than
usual, we got a couple of snow flakes. Froze over ponds has
not yet happened and I hope it never will. Also that
probably would kill off some of the mosquitoes which
wouldn't hurt my feelings none, because they sure are plenty
full here. There is a lot of vegetables like carrots,
radishes and onions that are planted in late summer and
early fall and harvested during the winter months. It gets
too hot for them here in the summer. For example: Our onion
seeds go in the ground in September, in November the little
plants get set out and in March and April they get
harvested. This year they were about 3 weeks late due to the
unusual cold weather we had. We can plant year round. A good
winter crop is also collard greens and mustard greens. I
didn't know what they were either until I got here. I could
go on and on. To me it is just amazing how the plants grow
here and how sweet the vegetables are at harvest. There is
something in the soil here that makes them extra sweet. You
have to see and taste it to believe it. :-)
Re: Butterflies In Flight
thx for the 'sweet' explination
do you have big fields and what kind of machinery do you
have ?
ps do they have chrysanthemums in Georgea ? (because we just
started planting today ) :-)
Re: Butterflies In Flight
This is Shad, Kadee don't know much about my equipment and
fields. She just loves the plants, watch them grow and take
pictures of them.
Most of our fields are around 20ha. The tractors I am using
are 3 John Deere tractors, 1 Ford tractor, 1 AC tractor, 1
International tractor and 1 Massey Ferguson.

Chrysanthemums, we don't grow them personally, but I am sure
you could grow them down here, but we probably would have to
plant them earlier.

Hope you have a good season, best wishes, Shad
