Butterfly Garden at the library

Leave a comment

We heard the master gardeners from Cornell Cooperative Extension were going to plant a butterfly garden behind the library and were looking for helpers. That was an easy “Yes!” from us. We are in 4H and constantly at the library so it all went together. Maddie loved planting and taking pictures. It will be a lot of fun to watch the garden grow through the summer. A lot of summer reading programs are held outside since the library is small inside!

And one of the more exciting parts was discovering a robin had made a nest and laid eggs in one of the windowboxes. We are hoping to make more trips down this week and next so Maddie can take more photos! Perhaps a photo essay about robin eggs is coming for a fair project!
