I'm All About The Bugs!
I used to get so many beautiful butterflies in my yard every year until the 40 acres behind us got leased to a farmer and they plowed and sprayed it. After that I noticed a definite difference in the amount of all of the bugs, except mosquitoes!
I do all that I can to encourage birds, butterflies, and bees. I try to stay as organic as possible.
The last two years I have collected milkweed pods and spread the seeds. I always loved them when I was a kid because they are so silky and I love to see them fly.
There are many sites and information on the Internet to help you with supporting a Monarch butterfly habitat but really you can just add some of the plants that they need and don't spray.

Here is my son obliging me in my quest to help the butterflies!
Here are two of my butterfly inspired ploymer clay beads that are on my Etsy Shop
