Hey! It’s Butterfly Day
Here’s something fun for kids and kids-at-heart to do today. Springhouse Gardens will be hosting its 2nd Annual Butterfly Day today, June 9th, starting at 10 a.m. Participants will have the opportunity to join regional authors Judy Burris & Wayne Richards, authors of The Life Cycle of Butterflies and their new book The Secret Lives of Backyard Bugs for a morning of learning & exploring the world of butterflies and garden insects. Springhouse owner Richard Weber notes, “These books have served to enlighten readers of the amazing yet tiny world in which so many of these creatures dwell. The authors will bring this eye opening experience to life as we tour the gardens and dive into this often overlooked world.”
Last year, they painted the trunk of a tree with taste-temptations the insects couldn’t resist, I think including fermented fruit mush, molasses, and beer…. You never know who’ll show up for a sip.
Springhouse gardens is at 6041 Harrodsburg Rd., Nicholasville, KY – 3 miles south of Lexington on U.S.68
