Flutterby Gardening

With one bed of the vegetable garden completed, work is underway for a woodlands butterfly garden and sitting area. The extra butterflies in the yard can only help as long as I keep an eye out for the caterpillars. I'm still collecting plants and shrubs while I work on a natural-setting design of sorts. The garden will be in a semi-shady corner of the backyard, underneath a handful of tall pines. The soil is exceptionally sandy, fortunately there is a large variety of plants who dig that for a home. So far, I've gathered a couple Shrimp Plants, Jacobinias, and a Night Blooming Jasmine. I can't wait to catch a whiff of the Jasmine, which I've read is lightly fragrant during the day.
