Hummingbirds, butterflies, and a lizard named Rango

So, by my estimation, the garden is flourishing.  How do I know?  Because we’ve had multiple hummingbirds visit the hyssop, tons of butterflies, and a resident lizard that we’ve named Rango.

 

So, the Hyssop has definitely been a big draw for the hummingbirds and the butterflies.  The small trumpet shape is just perfect for hummingbirds as you can see below.  

This is the type of hyssop we have.  It’s called Root Beer Hyssop (or Agastache rupestris).  However there are lots of different types, and they all have wonderful properties.  This is a nice link on the qualities of hyssop and what it can be used in and why it’s so good to have in your kitchen garden: http://www.botanical.com/botanical/mgmh/h/hyssop48.html
