I never knew what a meme was until curiosity got the best of me while visiting various gardening sites soon after I began my blog. I watched from afar for a while, then finally got up the courage to post to a few of them. I’ve never regretted it! The memes I follow, and those that I contribute to on either a regular or sporadic basis, are educational, informative, beautiful creations.
Recently, while trying to identify several butterflies that were visiting my garden, I decided to create a butterfly “bucket list” for myself. Everyone knows what a bucket list is, right? My bucket list goal is to search out and photograph all of the butterflies (and moths) that occur in the county in which I live. If and when I ever get that done I’ll expand beyond that point!
To help me in this endeavor I’m using the following websites as informational guides:
- Butterflies of Wichita County, Texas (at A Bird’s Home)
- List of Butterflies of Texas (at Wikipedia)
- North American Butterfly Association
- Butterflies of Texas (at Butterflies At Home)
- Butterflies and Moths of Wichita County, Texas, United States (at Butterflies and Moths of North America)
This meme was formed from my decision to create a Butterfly Bucket List for myself. Butterflies are an integral part of every garden. Not only do they aid in pollinating our garden flowers, they provide a beauty equal to and often surpassing the blooms we plant to attract them.
