Blanco County Master Gardeners left the February meeting with a new appreciation of the intriguing life cycle of butterflies. Guest speaker Dan Holland’s slide presentation of butterflies in each stage of life provided attendees with a better knowledge of how to identify a particular butterfly starting at the caterpillar stage, how to distinguish males from females, and preferred host and nectar plants of the different butterflies.
Have you wondered how to attract some of your favorite birds to your backyard or wondered how to identify birds common to this area? Don’t miss “Birding in the Hill Country” presented by Master Gardener Susan Evans. This meeting will be held March 9 at the Blanco Library at 3pm (note new time for this program).
