Helping the Butterfly Garden in Central Park
It was a beautiful morning to be helping the San Mateo Arboretum Society replant their butterfly/hummingbird garden. If you haven't visited the 9th Ave side of Central Park - you need to go - so peaceful.
Apparently the local butterfly species are particular to visiting mainly native plant species, so Ed Pease led a project to replant the space in Central Park with native species that will attract butterflies, hummingbirds and other pollinators.
The Arboretum Society's nursery is impressive and definitely worth a visit (hours are Thurs & Sun, 10am to 2pm). Thank you, Julie, for the quick class on propagating succulents! Warning - you'll probably end up buying more than one plant from their large selection.
