Thanks for all the kind words, guys.

I had to fight to leave the "weeds" in place - the smart weed and virginia creeper. I have such a big property that my new plan is that if you are a native and a larval host, you can stay even if most people think you are a weed - so I've researched many weeds to avoid having to pull them out! Saves my back and knees a lot of work.

I have a few corrections to make to the website pointed out by the guy whose site I am linking to, for example he says my spicebush swallowtail that I won the photo contest with is really a dark form eastern tiger swallowtail (and I looked more closely, and he is right!) Oops! Next year I'll have the spicebush guys, since I planted spicebush and sassafras and have already found caterpillars (if you plant them, they will come...)

It's fun. You've probably got enough to do but.... didja ever think about letting the girls make some sort of a mud bath for the butterflies? It's called mud-puddling. Kids love mud!!!
