Butterflies in the Garden

Even before we planted our perennials we have started to see the butterflies flitting through the garden. The above picture was taken by Tom Bare when he was watering one hot, hot day!

An Orange Sulphur

Spicebush Butterfly on Agastache

Cabbage White

Angle Wing Skipper on Asclepias tuberosa. This little guy is difficult to see because it moves so quickly and erratically.

As we continue to see other butterflies I will update you on our sightings.


About chestercoextbutterfly

I am an apprentice Master Gardener with the Pennsylvania State University (PSU) Cooperative Extension Program. My local office is in Chester County. As part of my volunteer activity I am working with a team to develop a Butterfly Garden on the grounds of the  Church of the Loving Shepherd.  We will be using the creation of this garden as an educational program for some of the participants in the Bournelyf Special Camp which, is held every summer. Members of the congregation of the church will be involved as well as in the ongoing maintenance of the garden.The purpose of this blog is to document the project as it develops.
