'Natured Kids' created a butterfly garden, planted with red, yellow, orange, pink and purple nectar producing flowers.
Careful placement of a dish of wet sand, will provide the necessary minerals and salts for healthy butterfly growth.
Did you know....
* smells with its two antennae?
* uses a straw like proboscis
to sip nectar from flowers?
* tastes with its feet?
* has soft, tiny scales on its
wings that give it colour?
* helps us pollinate our
flowers and food?
Your local nursery can help you to select butterfly attracting plants for in your home or centre garden.

What a beautiful butterfly garden. We've been leaving the milkweed on our property for the butterflies - rather than pull it out. We get some lovely huge Monarch Butterflies and also the native Lesser Wanderer.ReplyDelete
