New Seating Enhances Charm of Hastings Butterfly Garden

African American news from Pasadena - Community news - the Butterfly GardenNewly donated benches and a chair shaped like a butterfly, along with large boulders arranged for outdoor seating (and climbing), are enhancing the charm of the Butterfly Garden created in May at Hastings Branch Library, 3325 E. Orange Grove Blvd. in Pasadena.

The public is invited to enjoy the playful outdoor seating, which has become the place for photographing children with their favorite books (which have been known to flutter).

The teak benches and dramatic winged chair were donated by The ARBA Group & SKCB Management Inc. and complement the garden.

With the aid of District 4 City Councilman Steve Haderlein, community volunteers helped plant the garden that favors native drought-tolerant plants sure to attract Monarchs, Queens, Swallowtails, Painted Ladies, Buckeyes, Red Admirals, Sulphurs, Whites, Gray Hairstreaks, Skippers and Azures.

Other project partners include Pasadena Public Library, Pasadena Public Works Department, Barrios Landscaping, Magic Growers and local lepidopterist Jack Levy.
