Closer Look at the Bee and Butterfly

Take a closer look at two of the pieces in this month's exhibit at the SAVA Gallery.

A visit from these pollinators is a blessing to any park or garden. You can attract butterflies and bees to your garden by adding native plants with colorful blooms. Here are just a few suggestions:
  • Lavender's lovely scent attracts butterflies
  • Purple Coneflower/Echinacea Purpurea attracts butterflies growing  easily with little care
  • Lemon Balm, Thyme and Borage all attract bees
