Vines Garden Butterfly Walk

In October, GCMGA members and Master Gardeners Shirley Bohm and Jeff Hicks led an educational walk and talk for the public at Vines new butterfly garden.  Visitors learned about the life cycle of the butterfly, various host and nectar plants they like, and how to create your own butterfly garden.  The masters gardeners broke ground for the project in January and it is wonderful to see the established plants along with caterpillar larvae and various butterflies!

Bethesda Senior Center

GCMGA members have maintained the landscape immediately around Bethesda Senior Center as well the Butterfly Garden at the rear of the building for many years and have updated the plantings each year.  This year, leadership is under Tricia Moakler with many regulars coming each month.  Suzanne Franklin sparked the addition of cosmos seed in the Butterfly Garden and this year they took over in glorious yellow.
