This fun and wonderfully simple activity will bring color, light, and beauty to your garden and home. With the relaxing and rewarding qualities of this outdoor hobby, it’s not hard to see why it’s sweeping the nation and growing in popularity.

Mathew Tekulsky’s The Butterfly Garden is a complete, step-by-step guide to gardening for butterflies. You’ll learn about:

• The butterfly life cycle, habitats, and behaviors
• Choosing and obtaining food and nectar sources
• Designing your garden
• Options for country, suburban, and city gardens
