Butterfly Bush

My brother-in-law , Rick, gave me a butterfly bush. So I made another flower bed in our backyard for it. I added some celosia and mums.  
I thought that the butterfly bush is not going to survive but it did and it's now blooming.
Now I get to see butterflies flying around our backyard.  Will show some more photos next time.
