Anyone who knows me, knows I love books. Especially books with beautiful pictures. And what subject is more beautiful than butterflies?
The book I have most commonly recommend for people interesting in learning more about butterfly gardening is Butterfly Gardening for the South by Geyata Ajilvsgi. Now there’s an updated, Texas version, of her book, Butterfly Gardening for Texas. According to Sarah Gardener at Texas Discovery Gardens, the Gardens will be hosting Ms. Ajilvsgi Sunday, September 8 for a Garden Stroll and book signing.
Admission is free to the butterfly house and gardens, and visitors can enjoy a stroll through our butterfly house and gardens, followed by a Q&A and book signing at 2:30. Books will be available for sale at the Gardens Gift Shop, but you may have to reserve a copy by emailing Sarah ahead of time.
It sounds like a great way to spend a hot summer afternoon, looking at butterflies and dreaming about how to make your garden more butterfly friendly next year.
