Summer is in full swing - which means my butterfly garden is a hot spot for butterflies, bees, and other little flying critters. I have a variety of nectar-rich flowers that attract tons of butterflies, and it's so neat to sit out there and watch them all. I also have lots of bees, which is good. I've seen at least 3 different species of bees. It's a nice little haven in the yard, and I also let some wild milkweed grow, just in case the Monarch butterflies need a place to leave their babies. When trees are full and it is sometimes hard to see birds - it's fun to turn to the little creatures that surround us!
