Event Report: Butterflies, Birds, and Blooms; Aug 10
We had a wonderful day at the Plummer House garden. Butterflies were abundant in both numbers and species, so we stayed in the vicinity of the garden and delighted in the show, which also included numerous insects. A Blue Grosbeak sang repeatedly from the meadow and a striking saddleback caterpillar was found on a bush in front of the house. Several attendees had cameras and they were very busy snapping photos. Everyone seemed to enjoy the spectacle. The list of butterflies observed appears below.
Join us for our next, and final program in the series: Saturday, Sept 14; 10:00 am - noon!
