I'm fascinated by butterflies and inspired because I'm reading Barbara Kingsolver's Flight Behavior,'s gardening season!


nectar table at The Butterfly Farm in St. Martin

People are always enchanted with the butterflies during the  exhibit at Krohn Conservatory in Cincinnati, Ohio.  I love watching the interaction.  (The first photo of this POST is of a butterfly on a girl's nose!)

The Butterfly Farm  St Martin (Caribbean) --Monarch butterfly caterpillars need milkweed plants on which to feed.  Find out how, in the US, you can get free milkweed seeds.  There is a link to a USA state by state guide of where butterfly exhibits can been seen. 
Krohn Conservatory
Monarch Butterfly website --lots of information
The Butterfly Site --awesome site with a plethora of information.  Look under "Gardening" for a list of plants liked by a variety of species of caterpillars and butterflies.  There are links to butterfly varieties found state by state in the Us as well as other countries.
