Roxie and I are excited to begin our 2018 butterfly gardens!
Our new book “The Monarch” by Kylee Baumle is just packed with information about the Monarch eggs, caterpillars, chrysalis stage, and the eclosing of the beautiful Monarch! (This book is available on Amazon.com I’m recommending the book as a personal user and do not receive any compensation for my recommendation.)
Help save the pollinators and butterflies! Create your own special garden either in containers or in the ground by using a variety of milkweed plants and native host and nectar plants in your growing area!

Visit your nearest botanical garden(s) for information on butterfly and pollinator gardening.

The flowering Japanese cherry tree has the most delicate, ruffled blooms, and is so pretty against the clear blue sky! I wish the blooms would last all Spring and Summer!

“The Orchid Show–Madagascar 2013” is in full bloom through March 31 at the St Louis Botanical Garden. It’s a colorful and fragrant place to visit during the dullness of the winter!
The Garden has about 7,000 individual orchid plants representing approximately 280 genera and more than 2,500 unique orchid taxa.
Volunteers spend weeks designing and arranging the orchid show each year. This year’s theme highlights the Garden’s long-standing research and conservation work in Madagascar.
