Gardening to attract butterflies
Besides flowers and plants for your butterfly garden, you can also create an environment with water of some kind. A birdbath will look attractive and keep the butterflies up off the ground, away from stray cats or mischievous puppies. A shallow dish on a post or hung in a tree will do just as well.
When planting your butterfly garden be careful how you coordinate the colors you choose for your flowerbeds. Although butterflies do not care about your choice of color, you don't want your garden to be full of unrelated colors and textures.
Delight your family and visitors with beautiful butterflies, but be sure to create a safe habitat for them. If you own cats, it may not be a good idea! Happy butterfly gardening!
