How cute! 😀 We plan to have a meadow.. a butterfly oasis and home. In the future, having a learning station to see various native butterflies in their habitat, would be ideal for the help of conservation. I am a lover of stone paths. *^^* hehe So, designing a ‘long eye’ shape stone walking path surrounding the butterfly waystation would make sure children and their parents/guardians knew visually where they could and couldn’t cross.
By having a waystation for the butterflies on the property, helps the new emerging adult butterflies from the indoor butterfly sanctuary -have a food source, place to mate, lay their eggs and help keep the butterflies return to the Butterfly Forests Homestead. 🙂
Also to note, the waystations/meadows help keep the honeybees happy and well fed all year round. Even when the time comes for the four bee boxes to swarm naturally; the likelihood of returning or staying in the area is higher due of the densely populated food sources. It helps lastly for the honeybees and butterflies to continue pollinating (some butterflies do help pollinate) the various fruit bearing trees, bushes, flowering herbs and many others. 🙂
Daniel and I desire strongly to inspire and fascinate any guests and new found friends who stop by the Butterfly Forests Homestead, to learn how anyone can help heal the world.
By having the sign posted in front of the densely flowering butterfly waystation; also in addition – we shall have the certificate mounted right underneath the main sign. I’ll sketch-watercolor the butterfly mini-meadow shortly.

First Waystation design. Second design coming soon! 😀
