You can discover the birds and butterflies that live in your area and invite them in by planting their favorite flowers. There are many plants that provide nectar for butterflies and there are others that give them shelter for laying their eggs. Hummingbirds are a wonderful addition to the garden and are attracted by colorful, tubular flowers.
The tubular flowers of Penstemon provide nectar for hummingbirds and the dense perennial border provide protection for butterflies.
Birdhouses are functional and decorative. This one is a replica of the house where it's located. Keep them in the shade and high enough so the cats won't menace!
This vegetable garden says 'Come Visit!' to all the flying critters in the neighborhood.
