I have been busy lately helping with creating a butterfly garden for a golf course community.
Actually, I had originally designed and planted this large garden over 10 years ago as a hummingbird garden (during my time there as a horticulturist). It turned out great and was one of my favorite projects.
I was thrilled to be asked to create a new design for this area so that it would attract both hummingbirds and butterflies.
I can’t wait to share the before and after photos with you in a few days.
One of the favorite things the kids and I did was to raise butterflies together.
I’m not sure what was the most exciting part…..
– Seeing the caterpillars create their chrysalis
– Seeing them emerge
– Releasing them into our garden.

Anyone can do it and kits are available online.
I blogged about our experience and you can read them here….
