A week ago I had some photos of the butterflies from the Desert Botanical Garden's spring butterfly exhibit. Today I have just some of the flowers that are planted inside the pavilion for the butterflies to feast on. One of my favorites is the Gazania. I love these radiant flowers with the stripes. They make me think of tigers when I see them.
There were also quite a lot of cape daisies inside the pavilion and the butterflies seemed to love them. I really like the colorful centers of these daisies. The purplish color makes a great contrast against the yellow petals.
This plant had a familiar look to me but they were marked with a name I had never heard before. They were labeled "Blueberry Taffy" a type of penstemon.
I'll end with another group of gazanias planted around a tree trunk. These flowers make me smile!
