Butterflies are the gems of the insect world. Master Gardener Lisa Nicklow Davis will provide a seminar on Butterflies and Native Plants on Saturday, Oct. 26, at the AgriLife Extension Office in Carbide Park.

Butterflies are the gems of the insect world. Their graceful flight and bright colors never fail to delight children and adults alike including me.

Not satisfied with the occasional appearance of butterflies, many gardeners are creating their own butterfly gardens with plants specially chosen to invite them into the landscape.
