The Birdhouse: A West Virginia gardening journal

Real butterflies of WV

All you have to do is plant a couple of butterfly bushes and they will come in clouds. There are butterflies everywhere today. Especially, fritillaries.

Seeing Red Admirals, swallowtails of all sorts, skippers, crescents, hairstreaks …

A big box turtle crashed the butterfly party. I caught him resting under the daisy leaves under our front window.
