For The Bees & Butterflies


 This is one of the locations for a Butterflyway garden. Many of them in the city have an old canoe placed in the centre of a garden plot and the whole area including inside the canoe is planted with native flowering plants. This one is located outside of Harbord Collegiate and looks like it has been there since 2018. I have been spotting gardens along boulevards and along laneways as more and more people join in the movement to help these creatures.

How good to plant for the bees and butterflies. Our state produces a huge amount of honey, so we like bees a great deal, and they are under environmental threat from pollution and pesticides.

You've given me a new challenge, to search out these butterflyways!
