I’m a recently retired college professor of speech communication and an avid tennis player who(after serious knee problems and surgery) gave up the midatlantic tennis tournament circuit. I started a very small butterfly garden in 1995 . I fell in love with everything about butterflies and butterfly gardening. The garden was "claimed" from forested land, heavy red clay, and steep slopes. It is now slightly over ONE acre of flowers and shrubs and trees to serve as nectar and host plants for butterflies. My wife and I love the time we spend gardening, watching butterflies, hosting butterfly garden tours and parties, foisting videos of our garden and butterflies on family and friends, and planning to include visits to public gardens and butterfly gardens as part of our travel plans(whenever possible).
I live in: United States
