Monarch Way Station and Butterfly Garden


 circa summer 2010

In 2010, the sod was removed to make way for twenty-seven different varieties of rose, four butterfly gardens, a dozen lilacs and an enhanced rock garden. To learn how you can help the Monarchs (and other butterflies and bees!) check out Monarch Watch at

The roses are mostly heritage roses and were purchased at a variety of heirloom sales. Most have done well to survive the winters of Zone 5, and a few new ones usually find their way here.
