In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt.
-Margaret Atwood.
 

With longer, warmer days upon us, no doubt you're hankering to get your hands (and just about everything else) dirty. As you plan this year's garden, we hope you'll find some inspiration in the flora and fauna pictured here. If you haven't clicked your camera for us yet, what are you waiting for?

North America is home to 760 species of butterflies, about 100 of which flutter in Florida. Worldwide, some 19,000 species of butterflies are known to exist, gracing every continent except Antarctica.
