Hi Cece, I know someone who got interested in stewarding mason bees, after she worked with honey bees. Best of luck, Kate
Thanks for these observations, Kathy!
Thanks for your post, Lynn. I just saw a news article that said this year may be better than the last for monarchs. I sure hope so!
Hi Stephanie, your aconites will stop blooming soon, but they will come up next year just the same size. Sent from my iPhone
Yes, crocuses are so beautiful and, youre right, one of the early ones too. Lets hope we see them very soon!

Im so happy to hear that, Diane. I think moths are really spectacular!
Very cool! They are fascinating to watch. Enjoy! Sent from my iPhone
They seem to like it next to our parking area, which is a very sunny location.
I hope you try to grow your own, Jenny. They really only require sunshine and a steady supply of water. The peppers and goat cheese do make a scrumptious combination! Sent from my iPhone

Thanks, Wesley! Thats great information.
Garlic seed is generally not available. The plants are best grown from garlic cloves. Use the large outer cloves for the best results.
Hi Shannon, I wasnt able to find out much information about this, but see http://lancaster.unl.edu/pest/resources/butterflymothrearing290.shtmlfor some instruction. Good luck and Id love to hear how it went! Kate
Thanks for this handy tip, Rosemary!
Thank you for this question. I thought that the names were interchangeable, but they are not! This fact sheet describes the distinction: http://www.extension.iastate.edu/publications/rg210.pdf
Youre welcome Penny. I just love to see the moths at our flowers in the yard. It helps me forgive the hornworms for the occasional damage they do in the garden.
I agree! Sent from my iPhone
