Saving the Environment with Butterflies

Butterflies are beautiful AND important!

I've always wanted to create a butterfly garden, but living near the Wisconsin border, growing flowers can be tricky. Butterflies play an important role as pollinators while adding beauty to the landscape. Last March, I started growing Zinnia seedlings in paper cups that grew on my window ledge until until the weather warmed up in June. Then I planted the colorful plants and waited for the butterflies to appear. One sunny afternoon they appeared out of nowhere! Gifts from Heaven!!!
