National Arboretum Flowers & Insects for Floral Friday

A walk through the National Arboretum always leads to pleasant surprises and summer is full of them. They have a whole bunch of zinnias in the National Herb Garden. We have red zinnias in our own garden but none as big as the one pictured above.

These yellow flowers were also in the National Herb Garden section of the U.S. National Arboretum (USNA).

 This fancy jasmine smelled nice to me and I don't usually like the scent of jasmine.
Butterfly feeding: Photo by Ben Wheeler
 My husband caught this beautiful butterfly feeding from an orange zinnia flower.

He also got this striking shot of a moth on what I think is a bachelor button flower (if you know for sure the name of the flower please share).

Hope you enjoyed this Floral Friday's featured photos. May God bless you!
