Where it all Began
The house was assembled and the hardscape completed in the winter of 2009.
The first snow! When the snow is heavy it coats the shade cloth. As it melts it will come through the cloth. If it is too heavy then Gregg will knock if off.
Due to the weather we typically get in the winter we close the farm in October. The Flying Flowers closes in September since the Monarch butterflies migrate to Mexico.
After a snowy first winter it was time to get the house ready for the butterflies. All the plants that are in the butterfly house are used as either host or nectar plants by the butterflies.
We have both perennials and annuals planted in the butterfly house. So the layout changes a little year after year.
Flying Flowers officially opens Mother's Day weekend every year. Visitors are welcome to come throughout the summer and spend some time learning about butterflies and relaxing in the outdoors.
A great place to come connect with nature no matter how old you are.
