    Huh. Continuation from yesterday. (It’s great to see the greats minds of a grandaunt and a grandniece thinking alike.)

    And I think that just maybe Gracie has learned that just because her Great-Aunt is “Old” doesn’t mean that she is unaware of current issues and the terminology to go with those issues.

    I have this one bush in my back yard that is always covered with black and yellow stripped butterflies. A “Firebush” which has an abundance of small red-orange flowers. They try to feed on the ligustrum trees but IT is covered by honey bees which seem to chase them off. Now the hummingbird (it may be more than one but who can tell them apart LOL) loves the fire cracker bush (more fern like with bright red tulip shaped flowers) and vists it every day.

    Yep, my wife has planted a garden and we enjoy all the birds and the bees and butterflies year ’round.

    I think we may be in trouble – I don’t see many butterflies anymore.

    I have made the same observation but have not heard much on it. That worries me more. Also with the climate change going on the monarch butterflies could be wiped out if they haven’t already.

    Night-Gaunt49: Except for a rather small national park, they are losing their winter grounds in Mexico. This year was the first time in ages I saw an abundance of milkweed (their main larval food), but no monarchs.

    I don’t know where this is, but around here there aren’t too many butterflies like there were in years past.

    We have plenty of butterflies. Here are some do’s and don’ts
    Do – Have bushes, shrubs or trees with small flowers so that something is always flowering
    Do let your wildflowers grow
    Do – Have moisture for the butterflies
    Don’t use poisons (herbicides or insecticides)
    We also have a lot of bees visiting the flowers. And weeds. We have spiders, including tarantulas, lizards, and a few things like scorpions and centipedes that I’d rather not have.
    But if you want butterflies, It’s all about having habitat that is healthy for a large variety of things, instead of trying to kill everything except a small handful of species.

    Even when the various plants are in bloom I hardly see any flies, wasps, bees and butterflies around them. No moths either.

    Now that Monsanto and allies have immunity from prosecution, promiscuous spraying is destroying crops, apiaries, and everything else along the food change – ultimately us too.

    @Night-Gaunt49
    It’s hard to have a healthy little corner of the world, even if you do everything right, when all around you people are spraying a lot of poison. Example – People don’t want mosquitoes, but find it too difficult to find and drain the stagnant water sources where the larvae develop. So when talk of mosquito born illness surfaces (West Nile, for example) the city starts spraying. I’m fortunate to live in the Texas Hill Country where there is a lot of undeveloped and un-farmed land.

    Irronically, we live in the ’burbs and have a lot of butterflies and bees around our 10×10 veggie garden, my parents live out in the country and have tons of flowering bushes an over 30 tomato plants but all they ever see any more are wasps…..
