Years ago we rarely saw a
butterfly or a hummingbird
moth.  There were bees
around, but none close to
the house.  This was
because I didn't really have
a lot of flowers around.  I
had hummingbird feeders
to attract the
hummingbirds, but no
flowers to speak of.  I had
been into gardening many
years ago but my job and
family life got in the way
and the gardening went by
the wayside.  During the
past couple of years I have
renewed my love of
gardening and am now
designing the gardens
around my home to attract
butterflies, bees and
hummingbird moths.  Even
though I have a long way to
go in developing my
gardens, the results so far
have been exciting!  So far
I've positively identified 16
species of butterflies and 3
species of hummingbird
moths that frequent the
flower beds around my
home.  I have a lot of plans
for my yard for this summer
and hope to attract more
and more as time goes by.

Whenever possible, I visit  
B
utterfly World in  Coconut
Creek, FL and
The Butterfly Place
in Westford, MA.  Obviously
 
Butterfly World is a huge,
gorgeous park and The Butterfly
Place is much smaller in
comparison, but The Butterfly
Place is a great place to visit,
and you don't have to travel to
Florida to see beautiful
butterflies if you live in the
northeast as I do.  If you are ever
in Massachusetts, do yourself a
favor and spend a leisurely
morning or afternoon at The
Butterfly Place.
