Ellen will be appearing once a month on Thursdays. Check out Ellen Honeycutt’s posts for us, and then go get to know her at her personal site:
About Ellen Honeycutt: I am a passionate native plant gardener near Atlanta, GA who is learning to appreciate more every day the relationship that plants have with our native fauna. I created a personal blog, Using Georgia Native Plants, to help increase the level of regional native plant information available to average gardeners. I try to emphasize the beauty and versatility of native plants as landscape choices as well as the value to the local ecosystem.

Judy Burris and her brother Wayne Richards are authors, photographers and naturalists. Their gardens focus on host plants to support native butterflies and other insects and critters in every stage of their development. Judy and Wayne live just 3 miles apart from each other in northern Kentucky, just across the river from Cincinnati.
