Gardening to attract butterflies is the emphasis in Vickie's garden.
"My name is Vickie Sowers, and I live in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Since April I have transformed our formally shady front yard into a butterfly garden. We have had many butterfly visitors, that we enjoy very much. Next year I have a many more ideas. I am so happy that I incorporated our leftover rotting tree stump into the design. It adds a lot of interest. Among the flowers I planted, Zinnias seem to be the butterflies most favorite."
