Butterflies at Home



Butterfly Gardening Blog 2024

We enjoy butterfly gardening in our backyard, and designing the landscape to provide food and shelter for a variety of butterflies.

We have a full page dedicated to Butterfly Gardening here on this website, with lots of tips on designing your butterfly garden, and some popular plant selections.
