Planting a garden usually reminds us of Spring……but in sunny Naples, it’s November that is the perfect time to plant a butterfly garden.
Nature and Nurture have always gone hand in hand here at Juniper Village because they are a winning combination that brings joy to our residents. That joy is even greater when children are involved. A local Girl Scout Troop headed by our very own Sharon Grund, Director of Wellness in partnership with Connections Director Donna Silva researched the possibility of planting a butterfly garden in previously unused space. With research on flowering plants that would draw an array of winged creatures, the concept of the Butterfly Garden was born. A perfect morning brought a dozen scouts together with our residents digging in the dirt to create a beautiful place for respite and delight. The garden has become a favorite spot and grows more beautiful each day. Nature and Nurture……a perfect blend for the spirit of life.
