6/13.=C2=A0 He was particularly pleased to see the first MILBERT'S TORTOIS=
ESHELL he's hosted in the yard for several years.=C2=A0 It was nectaring on=
his Buddleia alternifolia, a shrub that he (and I) consider a Milbert's Ma=
gnet, to the extent that there is such a thing.=C2=A0 Ours is in full bloom=
too, though no Milbert's yet this year.=C2=A0 But of the half dozen or so =
sightings we've had over the years of Milbert's, most have been nectaring o=
n this shrub when it's in bloom.Tom suggested we get this shrub years ago, =
specifically because he said Milbert's likes it, and it has been great for =
butterflies, and moths.=C2=A0 All day yesterday there were four Tiger Swall=
owtails and a Snowberry Clearwing on ours, with other visitors sporadically=
.=C2=A0 The shrub is quite hardy, and has long branches covered in typical =
Buddleia=C2=A0flowers.=C2=A0=C2=A0Unlike Butterfly-Bush, the well-known pop=
ular Buddleia davidii, B.alternifolia=C2=A0is once-flowering, in June.=C2=
=A0 It also blooms on last year's wood, so it needs to be pruned right afte=
r flowering.=C2=A0 The long somewhat drooping branches that sprout will the=
n bloom the following June.I'll try to take a picture and post in a separat=
e email.=C2=A0 I haven't tried posting a photo to masslep before, so not su=
