New Butterfly!

1 Comment

The Gulf Fritillary Butterfly has found us. Passion vine, or Lilikoi, is the host plant, and we don’t have one in our yard, but perhaps we are being told to get one. šŸ™‚

The first time this species appeared was in our dining room at dinner time. She hung out on the light while we ate.

Things I love: justice in all forms; flowers; locally grown food; cloth-diapering; breastfeeding; feminist theory; outdoor play; beaches; wine; Divine interventions; 4-H and coffee. Things I loathe: racism; homophobia; toxic crap; misogyny; litterbugs; the zombie apocalypse and pitbull-haters. My formal education is in sociology, gender studies, and public policy. I'm also a Lactation Educator; 4-H Youth Development coordinator a Certified Master Gardener and a graduate of a Permaculture Design Course. I've been blogging for several years on dozens of topics- everything from women's health to breed-specific legislation. But the thing I like to write about most is my gardening, food adventures and my kids. So there you have it. Please be kind. Thanks.

One thought on “New Butterfly!

  1. Entomology must be really interesting in Hawaii! How on earth did the gulf fritillary get there? We have them here in Kansas, but I haven’t seen any. I usually see a few great spangled fritillaries each year, though, which look similar to the gulf.
