  • I picked up this wonderfully entertaining and delightfully illustrated book at a Scholastic Book Fair a number of years ago and devoured it with my kids. The subtitle, “Green Thumb MagicĀ for the Great Indoors,” says it all. It is chock full of fun gardening related craft projects and science experiments that easily answer the question, “How do things grow?” But that’s not all. There’s legend and lore about a magic turkey that planted the first corn and a mythical dragon that dropped the first peas on the ground. It is sure to inspire your child’s imagination and fascination with nature.

  • One of the best ways to help wildlife flourish is to plant a special garden with nectar-rich flowers that will attract bees, butterflies and insects. If you don’t have a lot of room, a window garden or pot garden will do.

    The following is a list of flower suggestions.

    • Lace-cap hydrangea has lots of tiny flowers that attract bees and butterflies.
    • LavenderĀ  has a strong scent that butterflies love.
    • Hawthorn is a shrub that attracts insects and birds.
    • Pyracantha is another shrub with berries that birds like to eat.
    • Fuchsia with its sweet nectar attracts hummingbirds.
    • Buddleia often called the butterfly bush has scented flowers that attract both bees and butterflies.

    For more suggestions ask the salespeople at your local gardening shop
