    Very Interesting Info and Loved It. I have quite a few butterflies in my backyard during the spring and summer. I plant my plants in containers on my deck instead of in the yard. I know that Penta’s attract butterflies but what I didn’t know was the extensive list of other flowers that attract them too. Then to include some surprising info about where and why butterflies like to rest, I had no idea. I’m now on a new quest.We were just talking this morning outside about hummingbirds and what might attract them and now I have that information. What a great little book. This is one I refer back to from time to time.

Well, you will need to read the book to find out but I was surprised at some of the things the beautiful butterfly prefers! There is also good news for those of us who may have the occasional ‘brown’ finger – it’s great to hear I don’t need to keep the perfect garden to attract butterflies into my life!The use of images throughout the book, makes a topic such as this so much more enjoyable along with great tips on how to make your garden a hummingbird or butterfly magnet through use of color. I love red as well, so I understand the attraction for hummingbirds!With a great list of flowers in the garden planning chapter to assist you with your goals, this is a great, fun read covering the basics to get you on the road to butterfly and hummingbird heaven.

    Very useful tips! This is a great book for any nature lover who appreciates the beauty of watching butterflies and hummingbirds. I always loved seeing them randomly, but never really thought about attracting them to my own backyard! This gave me some fantastic ideas of how I’ll need to set my yard up so that I enjoy watching these beautiful creatures all the time right outside my window. Really cool book!
