The Makings of a Butterfly Garden

I'm happy to report we finally put in Grace's butterfly garden. Although as you can see by the picture its still pretty barren. We won't put in the majority of the plants until the spring. But at least we can now start planning our garden.

We have a pretty good idea on the types of plants we want and where they'll go. It will be a matter of finding them as some are more readily available then others. Butterflies are also attracted to a variety of herbs. So we'll be incorporating a lot of herbs into the garden.

Our landscaper and his crew did a wonderful job on it. He donated all the brick which saved us a lot of money. They also ran electrical and drip irrigation into the garden. I put in the fountain yesterday (not pictured) which already makes it look better.

I put up chicken wire to keep Bodie out until the spring. Hopefully once we get the plants and decorations in he'll stay out of there. If not, we might have to add a little white picket fence around the perimeter.
