Butterflies are among the most beloved insects. Someone once called them flying flowers. They float, they flutter and they dazzle us with their colors. We relish their dance of spring.

Any home garden, even a container garden, can attract butterflies.

The steps are simple — like most of earth’s creatures, butterflies just need food, water, sun and a safe place to have a family.
