Attract butterflies to your garden with this charming butterfly puddler. And watch your yard transform into a fairy tale scene as beautiful butterflies flutter around your garden. Butterflies are typically drawn to mud puddles because they can get the minerals they need from these small pools of water. This is why we usually find them gathering around on wet sands and mud. Damp puddles are the ideal spot for them to drink water, extract natural minerals and cool off on hot days.
So if you want to invite these lovely creatures into your yard, you can do so by adding a suitable puddling station into your garden. And we’ve stumbled upon this enchanting puddler that also doubles as an eye-catching decoration. This handcrafted stoneware features a shallow well with a base made of recycled glass. The triangular stoneware comes with sand and instructions for use. So you won’t have to worry about anything else as it includes everything you need to set up a puddling station.
Fill the shallow well with sand and add water until a puddle forms on the surface. You can also mix a pinch of salt to attract mineral-seeking butterflies even more. Place the puddling stone in a sunny location preferably among the flowers in your garden where butterflies can sunbathe. As the water evaporates, it leaves behind minerals and salts that butterflies crave. Butterflies tend to remember their sources of minerals. So, they are likely to return to your puddling station on a regular basis. You only need to make sure to refill it with water when the sand completely dries up.
This gorgeous puddler measures 8.5 inches long and 8.5 inches wide. The stone comes in a lovely white color with a detailed tree engraving and a small, round well in the center. It is handmade from high quality stoneware clay and recycled glass that won’t crack in the snow or fade in the sun. One happy buyer wrote:
“I love that it’s so self-sufficient, especially in the rainy season. It’s also a beautiful stone piece that shines when the light hits it just the right way, and I’m excited to see the butterflies in the spring.”
