How I Got Started

I started Butterfly gardening many years ago. My yard has been a progression over the years, and has made many transformations. Twenty years ago I experienced Hurricane Andrew. My yard and house were destroyed. We decided not to replace the pool screening and open up the backyard and put in some landscaping. That was the official beginning of my love for gardening in South Florida. I added a beautiful water garden years ago, and have been adding host and larvae plants for pollinators, mostly for the butterfly, for as many years as I can remember. I had my yard certified as a Natural Habitat, through the National Wildlife Foundation. To have a natural habitat you need to provide and meet certain requirements: 1. Provide a food source, 2. Provide a water source, 3. Cover, 4. A place to raise young. I try not to use any pesticides in my yard. I vermicompost and recycle as many of my food scraps as possible. If I had more land I would have a huge compost bin to recycle all my yard cuttings. Basically, I try to lessen my carbon footprint on this earth. In my own little world or backyard I try to provide an ecosystem in my water garden, provide birdbaths, birdfeeders, hummingbird nectar sources, feeders, puddling areas, host plants and nectar plants for butterflies and other pollinators. I am hoping to raise everyone’s awareness of the importance of saving our Butterflies, Blooms & Bees. Without them our world and food source will be in trouble. I hope you all enjoy my journey. I am not a Master Gardener, or Master Beekeeper, an Entomologist, or Journalists. I am simply a Backyard Gardener who is trying to lessen her Carbon Footprint of this Earth.

I hope you enjoy my blogs.

Working Hard to Catch Up - Introducing New Equipment!

 I haven't been able to catch up with my blog for quite some time - I am so sorry! Lots has been going on, and I promise to try and find time to update you all on things soon!

For now, as you can see below, I have been busy making soaps during the holiday but they are still curing. With the weather and holidays many of my ingredients to make lotions and sugar scrubs have still not reached my home. Sorry for the delay and inconvenience - I am working as fast as possible!

Also - believe it or not I am finally opening my present from Santa to me! It was a little chaotic with babies on Christmas Day! Too much to open so I am finally introducing my Electra-Press bath bomb machine in Hot Pink with glitter! I love it 💕💕💕💕. It will make production of Bath bombs easier and more efficient:

My first use of the new machine I made Oatmeal Milk & Honey Bath Bombs:

I love it!💕💕💕 Then I made these... getting ready for Valentines day
