Spider presentation

Someone let me talk about spiders again! Yes, I gave my program, "Spiders of Central Texas," to a nice group that met Thursday at the Kingsland Library. It was part of the Green Thumb program hosted by the Highland Lakes Master Gardener chapter.

Hostplant database

I just stumbled upon an awesome database! Check out HOSTS-a Database of the World's Lepidopteran Hostplants. You can search by family, genus and/or species of butterflies and moths AND/OR by family, genus and/or species of plants along with a location. 

This database is hosted by the Natural History Museum in London.

I ran a search of milkweeds (Asclepias sp.) in the USA and came up with 53 results. So cool!
