Perfect Set Up For A Butterfly Garden

I just have to share this! He has an area cleared and marked for Milkweed. Common and Butterfly Weed (tuberosa) are the most dominant. I believe he has a couple of Swamp in there also. Chairs are for viewing AND to give the caterpillars a place to crawl up and safely form a chrysalis. The string keep Turkey and maybe Deer from bothering the plants and marks the area when the plants die back in the Fall, he easily knows where to look for them in the Spring. I would only add some nectar plants but he must have some nearby. Great example of an established Milkweed Station…this did not happen in one season. This garden is at least 2 years old….patience is mandatory😍😂
