Butterfly and Bird Garden

One of our great loves is nature. We believe that everyone craves natural beauty even here in the suburbs so we decided to replace old plants which were past their natural lifespans with new ones that attract birds and butterflies. We planted over 65 different varieties of butterfly and bird plants and already have sighted many species of beautiful winged creatures floating and fluttering on the wind. We certified our property as both a Butterfly Garden and a Monarch Butterfly Garden with the North American Butterfly Association (as well as being a member). We also certified as a National Wildlife Habitat. We intend to continue to provide a place of refuge for all of our guests, people, pets and local wildlife.

You can see some beautiful birds and butterflies resting on the leaves and sipping from the flowers. The most common visitors have been Monarch and Frittilary butterflies as well as a variety of birds, lizards and other interesting animals.
