Our Butterfly Garden
Have you visited our butterfly garden lately? It is lush and gorgeous. It was gift from the Windham Garden Club more than a dozen years ago, and continues to be maintained by its members. I took several photos last week and saw two swallowtails, a gazillion bees, and many dragonflies.
This year, its most outstanding feature is its huge stand of Buddleia, a.k.a. Butterfly Bush. It has grown to about 8 feet high, and has lovely violet colored blossoms.
We have several books in the adult section on growing butterfly gardens, and more in the children's room, including, Design Your Own Butterfly Garden by Susan Sales Harkins [J 638 HAR]. And for the picture book set, Waiting for Wings by Lois Ehlert [JP EHL].
