The days fly by….

The outdoor spaces around our house are constantly in motion. Whether it’s a butterfly, bird, or a summer firefly, our house is “abuzz” as they say. A little over five years ago we transformed a vacant boring detention basin into a wildflower meadow. We got our township and our homeowners’ association to approve it. Over the following few years we slowly transformed other sections of our landscaping as well. We have a butterfly garden, a bird garden, a puddle garden, and two other mini meadows.

This blog is for the creatures we share our space with and the joy it brings to our family. In the pages of this website you will find plenty of articles about native plants, birds, and any other topic that perhaps catches my attention.
