My Butterfly Garden

Category: Gardening,Butterflies, Birds | Posted: Wed Feb 24, 2010 4:40 pm

I am starting new plants for my butterfly garden, it is about 4 years old and it needs a facelift, bad!

I am going to totally change things around and make it more formal and accessible for me. Right now it looks more like a butterfly meadow than a garden.

I want to be able to sit and watch all the butterflies that visit my butterfly garden. I plan to make formal beds of perennial and annual flowers, along with some host plants thrown in for good measure.

I will keep one small section as a "butterfly meadow" for all the wildflowers that the butterflies love.

How calming to see many butterflies about!

I have to say, I love the look of your butterfly meadow. Love it! But I do understand wanting to make it a little more formal. I'm glad you'll leave a part of it wild. It surely is pretty.

Your "old" butterfly garden looks lovely! I'll bet the new one will be too!

The colors and blending are so pretty. It looks like a painting.

Thanks for sharing this and I hope your new garden is every bit is enjoyable and picturesque.
