Coleus Camoflage

Greetings from the garden,
There really is a mystery to gardening that goes beyond all that one sees. 
Truly Solomon in all his glory was not clothed as glorious as these!!!
A wonderful meticulous Creator has his signature on all this design around us.
 Having the greenhouse this year has allowed us to be a part of the butterfly dance as it tours our region.
I try to grow many of their favorites and have discovered that we share so much of the same taste. 
Several of these swallowtails have been hanging a round alot lately but I couldn't resist a photo shoot with this one when he landed on the coleus, notice the similarity in design.
Our Loving God continues to reveal His attributes in nature if we will stop and take notice.
 I am thankful to Him for all I am able to see and enjoy with my senses. It really is a wonderful life. A heart of gratitude can make the difference between a regular day and a great day! I hope you have a great day and enjoy the splendor all around you. Blessings to you. Meg

Congratulations on seeing this and capturing it with your camera!

My grandparents had many, many coleus. My grandmother would take cuttings and winter them. They'd sprout roots and be ready for planting in the spring.

I found your blog and saw that we must have much in common--married to the same man for 28 years--a pastor's wife, fellow garden blogger, and fan of some of the same movies! I look forward to seeing your posts. I invite you to check mine as well. Blessings and happy gardening! Lovely photos.
