If you have been following this blog you know that we landscaped the pump house will all native plants. One of the plants is called Spicebush and is the host plant for the Spicebush Butterfly. I don't know how she found it but she did. We already have one Caterpillar who has made our pump house it's home. It's amazing how fast the butterflies found these new plants. Nature is truly amazing.
