I don't know much about them, but do enjoy going to the Butterfly Pavilian to see them. I would like to attract them, but so far I haven't been able to grow any of the flowers that attract them in my yard. We have terrible ground for growing plants -- cement hard clay.

I know a fair amount I suppose. I do like them and enjoy visiting butterfly houses. I do try to attract them in my gardens. I've heard they do not have enough milkweed plants.

I did for the last 60 years in my Minnesota gardens however since October we are full time residents of AZ and I'm only learning what grows in this climate...If it attracts butterflies or favorite birds it is more likely to be a plant chosen.

Jackie I'm a Halloween baby but many years ago.

Summer: Minesota
Winter: Arizona (as of Dec. '08)

Personal goal is to weigh in 159 by the end of March 2017. I did not make my previous goal so must do better...I ACHIEVED THE GOAL OF REACHING 151 IN MAY 2013. A LOSS OF 37 POUNDS! Summer of 2014 I gained 10 pounds of it back while traveling to the BVI's and Ireland so I have set a new goal for 2017 to be back to below 155.

I love butterfly gardens and when I have a choice of plants the butterfly plant comes first.

Kinda interested, kinda try to attract...but with all the other things I'm trying to manage, my butterfly attempts are only half-hearted.
I do have one side of my house set aside to attract birds and butterflies. Once we get the house painted I can set up some more permanent things to attract them.

And we all lived happily ever after...

Probably one of my top three photo subjects over the years. You can find some of mine by digging down into my "photos" on my Spark Page. I have much newer ones that I haven't uploaded yet due to laziness. We are very blessed to live within an hour of this:

They had a more seasonal and temporary butterfly house until recently when the atrium was completed. I can usually spend several hours there when we go to Hershey Gardens.

Today is National Learn About Butterflies Day. Do you know much about butterflies? Are they something that interests you? Do you try to attract them to your garden?
