Our thanks to Carolyn Rallison of Last West Gardens for her generous donation of perennials to Ellis Bird Farm. All the perennials are excellent for bees and butterflies. Carolyn has been a big EBF supporter over the years.
Our Glover's Silk Moths are hatching! We were excited yesterday to discover that the adults of these gigantic moths, which we overwintered at the site, are finally emerging. Our thanks to Dr. David Lawrie for donating the caterpillars to us and showing us how to raise these moths. We will release these native moths on the site.
