Bug of the Week: February Painted Lady

Look who visited the flowers in our yard this week:

It is a painted lady butterfly.

In addition to flowers for nectar, we also have hollyhocks because they are a larval food plant.

If you grow it, they will come.

    True, if you grow it they will come. I heard that the Monarch butterfly is making a comeback!
