Monarchs Arrive in Texas

The Monarch butterfly has left their wintering grounds in Mexico and are arrving in Texas. If you do not have milkweek do what you can to get some and set them out in your garden. They will need host plants for the next generation and will also need lots of flowers for nectar. We hope this will help. Other plants your garden should have are curled parsley for the black swallowtail and passion vines for the gulf fritirlary.

Oh my gosh what fantastic photographs. Amazing! I adore butterflies. One day I hope to have a real butterfly garden. Would you allow me to use some of your photos to create butterfly fairies? In the UK our butterflies are dying out because of bad weather. But I did manage to photograph a few in the past two years they make great fairy wings. Thanks for sharing Sharon from Butterfly Lullaby

Many of the older properties in London and even some of the newer ones are prone to drainage problems. With everything from root growing into pipes, your own home waste blocking the pipe, to leaves and gravel being washed into the storm drains, there are a million and one things that can cause pipes inside and outside your home to be blocked.This is why it is very important to keep those drains free of debris to prevent them from becoming blocked. London drain cleaning will keep your pipes flowing freely to keep your property safe.
