I chose to feature the Oregon Silverspot butterfly because many of the plants it relies on during its life-cycle are plants that I’ve met and come to love through my study and practice of herbalism and the tending of my home garden. In my piece I’ve nestled it among plants I have existing relationships with: violets, yarrow, pearly everlasting and goldenrod—and one new friend, Douglas aster, which I can’t wait to invite into my garden!
