|FROM WILMA: Papillon, mariposa, bimbilo, vlinder, and farfalla are just a few of the poetic names from other languages for butterflies. In cultures around the world butterflies represent endurance, change, hope, and life. There are thousands of species of these beautiful, graceful insects ranging in wingspan size from ½” to 12”. Many color variations add to their beauty.|
Both yellow swallowtail and black swallowtail have been busy on tithonia, zinnias, and Rose-of-Sharon in my garden. It is almost spellbinding to watch them. Recently a few monarchs have been visiting the displays at the Garden Center. Hopefully they will lay lots of eggs on the stand of milkweed behind the greenhouse.
Late summer and early fall-blooming perennials like Joe Pye Weed, ironweed, goldenrod, coneflowers, asters, etc. attract butterflies. The larvae (we call them “parsley pigs”) of swallowtails feed on parsley, dill, and fennel. Stop by soon and select some of these butterfly-attracting plants for your garden.

|Kokedama Make & Take Workshop|
Sat. Sept. 14 at 2 pm
With Treasure Smith
Create a lush addition to your indoor plant collection. In this workshop, Treasure Smith will lead you - step by step - through the artful process of crafting your own beautiful Kokedama moss ball garden to take home.
Kokedama is a traditional Japanese bonsai technique where the plant’s roots are encased in a soil and sphagnum moss ball held together with sheet moss and bound with string. Also called “string gardens”, Kokedama can be hung, or placed in a decorative container.
It’s fun and easy! The workshop fee covers the instruction and all materials needed to design your Kokedama - your choice of a 2-4” tropical plant, soil, sphagnum & sheet moss, string, and macramé hanger. Reserve your spot on Eventbrite. $24.99 plus tax. Limited to 10 participants.
This workshop is kicking off National Indoor Plant Week, Sept. 17-21 (The oxygen doesn't arrive until the plants do!)
