Who doesn't like butterflies? Someone said butterflies are flowers with wings. True they are eye candy and every gardeners delight. They work as hard as the honey bees pollinating our garden. We have been blessed with an abundance of butterflies this year and I never grow tired watching them.

I was reminded of something my mother told me about a friend of ours a few years ago. Our friend had decided she wanted a butterfly garden. I have written about it on my blog if you would like to read it, it may make you laugh, or it may make you cry, or maybe both.  You can find it here --->http://riverrest.net/2008/06/27/a-simple-butterfly-garden/

Excellent story!

I guess it just proves the value of organic techniques.
