    Saw 1 or 2 butterflies, period, this summer. Lots of cabbage moths, but…doing my best as a chemical-free honey bee steward to keep the hives going..not easy. I’m going to try to find milkweed seeds to plant in my wildflower garden. Already have 3 butterfly bushes. Please keep up the level of awareness for all of us, even those of us close to the earth. Constant reminders are good for our planet. Not seeing many winter birds yet.
