A Brief Visit to the Outdoor Education Center

Here are a couple of pictures of the Bog Garden at the Outdoor Education Center. It is filling in pretty well and should be show ready next spring.

Over in the Butterfly Garden a milk weed has gone to seed. Still waiting on the Monarchs.

  1. Hi, Debbie, I had my first butterly visitor this morning on a butterfly bush that has finally established itself as a viable part of the garden. Pink. It was a swallowtail. I hope you will share photos of the butterflies that arrive in the Bog Garden as you can! I'd love to see who shows up down there!

  2. Looking good Deb!

  3. My butterfly weed is JUST starting to bloom. I love the orange color!

  4. The bog garden is looking great! I haven't seen many butterflies this summer, only a couple of swallowtails.

  5. I've only had a couple of swallowtail catepillars. My butterfly weed never gets that big. I'll have to pick your brain and see what you do with it.

  6. That milk weed is sure pretty! Mine always gets aphids--but maybe not this year. I used my tomato spray on it. P U - does that spray smell awful!! But if it works--I don't mind!

  7. Hi Kathryn, We are just now getting a lot of butterflies. I tried to cut down the dill, but found a baby. Yeah.

    Thanks anna.

    Monica, I am really happy with the butterfly weed at the OEG. Saved some seeds.

    Nola, that bog has been so ugly, I'm glad it is coming around.

    Sister, Compost the answer is always compost.

    Linda, I hope the butterflies don't mind the spray. We just wash the aphids off with a spray of water.
