When are plants riddled with holes a sign of beauty in the garden? When it is butterfly season. Plants that have been munched and chomped by caterpillars are a great sign that you will have happy and healthy butterflies fluttering around soon. With the Jamestown Audubon Center's Monarch Festival coming up next Saturday, what better time than now to evaluate your garden and think how you can make it even more inviting to our fluttering friends. Ancient civilizations revered the butterfly and some believed them to be the spirits of dearly departed. Today, these delicate creatures bring movement and color to the wild garden, and play an important role as pollinators.
