Back in April, Seymour wrote about his Earth Day pledges, and one of them was that we were going to build a garden that would be a butterfly habitat. We had a spot, under a big elm tree, that was completely overgrown with weeds.


  Two months, a lot of hard work and one terrible case of poison ivy later, we have a butterfly garden! Now, we just need to wait for it to stop raining, for the weather to get a bit warmer, and for our new seedlings to grow and flower. Hopefully, we will soon see many butterflies, moths and hummingbirds in this peaceful place.



Next week’s SUMMER VACATION SCIENCE unit will be about how to create your own butterfly garden. Be sure to check back here to learn more!
