What fun to watch a tiger swallowtail nectar on a flower! Yet, have a care: After that first look, it's a slippery slope to becoming very involved with these winged works of art.In this issue of What's Coming Up, we enjoy and learn from a reader's attachment to a hatch of caterpillars: Where is a butterfly before we see it on our butterfly bush? What happens to it at the end of a year? How can we attract more to our garden?

A number of readers asked us to bring back our
pre-website newsletter format, which was a pdf file.
It was "easier printing for we who like to flip real
pages while reading" and also "easier to keep on
file in my own computer."                                         
We're giving the pdf option a try, offering it when
we have the extra hours double-publishing requires.

This alternate print-easy pdf format is a trial offer.
The extra work to produce this pdf was Sponsored
for you by a group of readers through issue #205.
Sponsorship from you can keep it going longer.
