Lily wants to plant a garden. She knows that all plants need soil, water, and sunshine to grow. She would like to grow vegetables like peas and beans. But she wants butterflies and ladybugs to visit, too. What kinds of plants should she grow?
Her mom said butterflies are attracted to bright colors and flowers that face up towards the sun. Her mom also said the vegetables would be good for their family.
When Lily and her mom went to the store for seeds, Lily chose pumpkins, pink daisies, peas, hollyhocks, poppies and carrots. Then she planted her garden. She could hardly wait to see what happened!
