  5. it's just me

    i started with one white butterfly bush, it made a baby purple butterfly bush, then the year after that, had 3 or 4 baby bushes start. you can’t beat free bushes. just wait, you’ll have a whole family, from one bush.

    the Monarch buterfly loves milkweed plant
    when it warms up go hunting for some.
    there should be a place on-line to get catterpillers,,why not they do praying mantis and ladybirds and worms
