365 Gratitude Project – Day 147: Butterfly Garden Opening

May 27, 2017

 I’m grateful to have attended the opening day of our Butterfly Garden and the brand new Pollinator Garden. This is the second year for the Butterfly Garden and this year the seasonal building has a new outer skin which allows more heat and light inside to keep the butterflies and the plants they need happy and healthy.

The butterflies are free-flight, so you do need to be careful where you step and you need to check to see if you have any hitchhikers before you leave. 


New this year is the Microsoft Pollinator Garden behind the Butterfly Garden. There’s lots of great information about plants and flowers which promote the visitation of butterflies, moths, bees and hummingbirds. They also had several designs for mason bee houses using a variety of natural materials such as wood and paper straws.  

You Butter not Bee a stranger, come visit!
