Just built this garden sopt this spring, hoping to attract lots of butterflies, bees, hummingbirds and song birds! Thanks to Cathy aka caterwallin, for giving me so many seeds, and also planted lots of plants from the local greenhouse! Love going out each day to see how it is growing!

Your garden is going great, Sunshine! I'm sure you'll attract lots of butterflies and birds!
What section of NC do you live in? If you're in the mountains, I'm jealous! I think zebra swallowtails and pipevine swallowtails occur there in pretty good numbers, but also, the gorgeous diana fritillary occurs there.
Keep us posted as to your garden's progress!

I am in the mountains Sherry. We have lots of swallowtails here, in fact I see mostly them. Hoping to attract some new ones as well :) I'll post more pics as it grows.. Regina
