Butterflies are one of the flying flowers that get my attention when I’m outside.

I usually plant curly parsley for the caterpillars and Italian flat parsley for us to eat. This gives us a world of wonder as we watch creation in action.  Nothing better than hands on science.

I do less gardening lately, with my disability, but Nicole, at Mom Always Find out has a whole post on what to plant to attract butterflies.

I love to have all of these around my house.  Right now I have Lantana.
