It's the 50th Earth Day celebration!

To celebrate, I wanted to make some big changes when it came to my garden and how I wanted to appreciate the Earth more! So, I was looking up on the National Wildlife Federation on how to attract more butterflies to my garden, and then I figured, what if I just made a whole butterfly garden!

Here are some bare necessities to know about your garden:

  • Plant native flowering plants
  • Plant type and color is important
  • Plant good nectar sources in the sun
  • Plant for continuous bloom
  • Say no to insecticides
  • Feed butterfly caterpillars
  • Provide a place for butterflies to rest
  • Give them a place for puddling

If you want even more tips, please visit the National Wildlife Federation!

And another thing our local community is doing in light of both recent events and Earth Day, is that the Norfolk Botanical Gardens are still open, but with limited access!
