i hope these are from my yard
yup. mine are purple. and mostly dead.
those are so awesome! My butterfly bush was about 3 feet high, but it's a slightly low area of my flower bed and is slowly drowning with all of the rain we've had. It really hurts my feelings. I'm not usually very sentimental, but it physically hurts me to see it die slowly like that. I even bought a soaker hose about 2 months ago because it wasn't raining and I didn't want it to die of thirst.God has a sense of humor sometimes.
my mom has magic dirt or something. my flower beds are having the opposite problem to yours: no water in weeks. our grass is completely burned, even in the front yard, where the sun only shines for a couple of hours in the morning.
