Welcome! This blog is mostly about butterfly gardening, but other types of plants and gardens, as well as
other wildlife is blogged about too.
My Wild Violets are blooming beautifully now! They of course are host plants for fritillaries, like the Variegated Fritillary. I mostly have them growing between and along my stepping stones:
Here’s a picture from a distance where you can see them around the stepping stones:
We have been replacing our lawn with a native grass, meanwhile – since it hasn’t filled in all the way there are lots of violets growing there. And dandelions too – but they are also pretty.
Last year I started an herb garden. What’s growing so far in it this year is sage, terragon, fennel, lavender, rosemary, thyme, lemon balm, pepperment, spearament, borage, savory, oregano and chives. I still have several basils, some chamomile, anise and a few others to put out still.
