What a gorgeous day for communing with the butterflies! Wow, they are really out in force today. I find it difficult to go inside the house as they are fluttering all around my back garden! It helps that the green belt behind our house is blooming with hundreds of gaillardia (blanket flower) and my own garden is in full manic bloom right now. But I also put out some butterfly bait and they seem to be enjoying it!
How cool is this? Just sliced oranges on a wire and in a bird feeder tray.
Give it a try...
I'm going to set out a plate of sliced watermelon now... I've read they love that also! I'll keep ya'll posted!
