Garden Butterflies

This is the time of year when yards and gardens are filled with bees, birds, and butterflies. I have seen a number of large yellow butterflies this month, and they look so pretty flitting through the colorful gardens blooming in the summertime. The CSU Cooperative Extension has produced a publication called Attracting Butterflies to the Garden, offering tips on which fruit and flowers are most attractive to butterflies. Using these plants can attract these pretty insects that will make your garden even more colorful.
