Butterflies At Home

Rabindranath Tagore points out, “The butterfly counts not months but moments, and has time enough.” In your garden space, butterflies should feel at home. Providing an enriched butterfly environment is simple – offer a wide variety of plants, grasses and wildflowers and you should see your summertime share of butterflies. Want to keep these critters flitting about the garden? Offer a bit of sun, shelter, water and of course, flowers rich in nectar. Although this Yellow Swallowtail may have but a short life, the beauty of this butterfly is simply spectacular. As R.H. Heinlein reminds us, “Butterflies are self propelled flowers.”
