Let's do the butterfly mash

This glass feeder has become the 'local pub' for red admirals in Charlotte's gardens.
Charlotte, a WTW blog reader, sent this photo and recipe to me. Because red admirals are my FAVORITE butterfly species, I asked if I could share, and she said yes!
2 black bananas, peeled and smashed
1 tablespoon molasses
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1/3 cup dark beer (more or less to make the   mixture “soupy”)
Mash ingredients together and allow to sit UNCOVERED overnight to ferment. Spoon small amount into a shallow plastic lid. If you make it, they will come.

How much fun to have a mash to try.
I live in the Rio Grande Valley in South Texas, and I have just started really working on things in the yard.

Enjoyed visiting,
