I’m a gardener and while I love all these gardened themed spring things, I want real butterflies too in my garden. If you would like the same, it is easy – just make sure you have a few plants that attract butterflies. Here are few things to inspire you and get your butterfly garden started.

A butterfly garden must have pollinator plants. In Butterfly Gardening for Texas, author and native plant expert Geyata Ajilvsgi shares a wealth of information about the flowers and other plants that butterflies must have for their miraculous life cycle. This book has all you need to know about Texas plants for butterflies. Shop for it here.

If you are going to garden, you need a few tools. This three piece set is heavy duty, cast aluminum so no worries about rusting. The soft rubberized handle reduces wrist and hand pressure. A depth measurement scale on the transplanter simplifies the planting. A nice, well-made tool set for any gardener. Shop for it here.

Multi-purpose Garden Pruner Snips have stainless steel blades that cut to the tip and stay sharp. The easy action spring reduces hand fatigue. Use to cut flowers for bouquets or deadhead spent flowers. I have and love this set. Shop for it here.

Many years ago, a friend gave me a pair of Foxgloves Original Gardening Gloves. I loved them and try to keep a pair on hand. I do have lots of gloves, but Foxgloves are a favorite since they are soft, high-tech sports fabric that is durable. I especially like the long cuff style to protect my arms. Washable. Shop for it here.
