A Butterfly Feeder Jar


Make a butterfly feeder jar just in time for spring. Use an old jar or jug with a tight fitting lid. Embellish the jar with glass paints and stencils. Make a hole in the jar lid with a drill or nail and thread strings, a piece of fabric or sponge through the hole. Fill the jar with sugar water, add the lid and hang upside down. Butterflies will soon be stopping by for a sip of nectar. Decor

    Plant dill for swallow tail butterflies! Just plant a lot of plants the larva are unbelievable eaters! Later I saw the mature blue swallow tails flying around! This year l'm going to plant dill and Mexican sunflowers every where on my 3 areas! I spent hours watching them grow and change!
