Thumb through any gardening magazine and you’ll find an tips on attracting butterflies to your garden. Various plants are listed as surefire butterfly magnets. The reality is somewhat different. Their favorite plants tend to be huge ungainly weeds that no one would choose to put in their yard,even if you could even find them in a nursery. Do I hear a Roundup?
If you’re lucky today, you’re having a little champagne in honor of Will and Kate. No self-respecting butterfly would think of toasting the royal couple with champagne. Great efforts are put in by avid naturalists to provide the dainty twerps with fresh water. Truth is, their favorite booze is old cow’s urine with fecal matter in it. Mmmmmm. Cow’s urine. Thirsty,yet?
We can only imagine the delicious tidbits that will be offered the Royal couple today. I’m guessing there will be cake. That wouldn’t make it at a butterflies’ reception.Petroleum products, anyone? No,really that’s what butterflies want. Yeah, I’ll put out a little saucer of transmission fluid for the kiddies.
