Butterfly Kingdom
Tuesday, April 18, 2006

While we were at Leisure Coast Resort last Easter Sunday, we visited their butterfly kingdom. The picture on the left is what you will see upon entering the garden. It is my second time to visit the garden. On the first time we were there that was last year, there were so many butterflies in the garden. Now there were very few. Maybe because of the very few flowers that are in bloom this time. Butterfly gardens contribute to the conservation of butterflies. In order to maintain and increase their population in a garden, there should be plants that the catterpillars like to eat (host plants) and also plants that adult butterflies feed on(nectar plants). In this way you are already providing for their environmental needs, their food and shelter in order for them to stay alive.

Since adult butterflies feed on nectar, you should also provide plants with flowers that bloom in sequence. These plants should be exposed to sunlight because butterflies love to stay in open sunny areas. They also prefer shelter from the high winds.
