Nice squares!

I'm interested in seeing some photos of your layout of your native garden too, if you find time. 

Have you seen any butterflies yet?  I've seen several varieties of fritillary, yellow swallowtails, and one monarch (or viceroy?), and of course the sulphers.  Since we put in our butterfly garden, and it's only been about one month, we've seen more butterflies in that short time than all five years combined since we've been here in this house.  Can't wait for later this summer.

I've only seen one honey bee...no other pollinators yet...the only early flowering plants I have in the yard are flowering dogwood, redbud, walkers low catmint, and columbine.  I see more when the purple coneflowers and liatris start to bloom.  Last year I had tons of small butterflies and moths...not so many larger butterflies and didn't see many bees (honey or bumble) at all. 

Compassplant, yellow coneflower, blanketflower, and several types of milkweed should be in full swing in a few weeks.

Blue False Indigo is in full bloom but not too much activity.

I'll try to post some pics when things get going...I also scattered some dill seed in the area for pickling and swallowtail caterpillars.
