Butterflies are so amazing to watch. I don’t know about you but they make me feel good when I see one. I consider it a gift when I see a butterfly because when you think about the trials and tribulations they go through just to get here, it’s mind boggling. First they need to survive being a caterpillar and then they go through the soupy mess of becoming a butterfly. Once they transform, butterflies have to stay clear of all those birds looking for dinner. No wonder their life spans are so short.
If you would like to attract more butterflies to you, planting certain plants around your house will attract them. The best plants for Arizona weather are shasta daisy, french lavender, rosemary, thyme, petunias’ and verbena. And I found another plant here in Arizona called the Butterfly Bush. It’s a gorgeous plant and the butterflies really love it. I found it at Moon Valley Nurseries. And remember, if you’re limited on space you can place these plants in pots and put them on your patio.
