Butterfly Garden Pics and Video

tiger swallowtail butterfly
My butterfly/hummingbird garden and the other gardens around my house were full of magnificent color this year. It adds a bit of beauty, joy and stress relief to this crazy life. The flowers and critters were so fantastic I made a video of the garden this year. I think I need to make a garden photo book for our coffee table, as well!  

Here are a few beautiful photos I love.

The butterflies, bees and hummingbirds that come to my garden love the Butterfly Bush, Petunias, Calibrachoas, Hibiscus and Red Day Lilies. The bees and butterflies love the Salvia, Cone Flowers, Zinneas, Black Eyed Susans and Queen Anne's Lace.

Zoya Sophisticates Fall 2017 Collection

zoya sophisticates fall 2017
Zoya's fall nail polish collection, Sophisticates, is available for your polishing pleasure! 

The name Sophisticates well suits these refined modern colors. The gorgeous colors range from a pale almond to a deep, dark gray blue. There are many mauves in this collection which will make my clients very happy. 😊 Mauve is best described as soft purplish pinkish color with gray tones. 

All the colors are opaque with the exception of Gal which is a bit sheer and requires 3 or 4 coats to achieve full coverage. One coat of Gal would make a fabulous glitzy overcoat. 

I have my favorites of course! Mona. It's a deep wine with an amazing glass like finish. Hadley. All who know me know I'm a blue fan. Hadley is a smoky deep blue also with an amazing glossy finish.

I photographed each color in inside lighting and outside lighting in my garden to show you how they look in different lighting.
