Karen, the first thing you should do is check your Dept. of Natural resourses and see what native plants attract butterflies in your area. They might even have teaching aids available to you for the students.
I recently volunteered at an elementary school garden and am looking for wisdom and insight as to what to plant with the kids for a butterfly garden in California zone 7b. I welcome any project ideas as well.I have found gardeners to be an extremely generous lot! Bless you all!!!
I'm hoping for the same Jan. I think your butterflies are Cloudless Sulphurs which I don't see till Aug. or Sept.. Thanks for sharing.
Below is just a couple of the beauties that hung out in my flowers.
I had a massive amount of Butterflies in my garden. People were commenting about it. I am hoping to have more this year.
It was not the dill that that went wild. The catapillars went wild on them and ate them all. It was the sage and basil.
Robin your visitor to the garden last Aug, was a Pecks Skipper. They are a perennial visitor to my garden and always welcome. I have been thinking butterflies for the last couple of days, looking at some of the older pictures I've taken of butterflies. My mind is ready for spring but the weather isn't cooperating. We had 3-4" of snow yesterday. Here are a couple of old pictures I don't know if there in my pictures on garden share or not. The internet is taking for ever right now to up load will have to try latter.The Tiger Swallowtail with the blue is the female the more plain one is the male. They were taken in Aug of 2008. I might have planted dill in the garden. Half the county was under water and I had water coming out of the ground in the garden. I did enjoy the butterflies that year.
I'm going to have to put some thought into it.
It took me years to yank out the dill that was growing in the previous owners veggie garden. It was everywhere, like a weed.
