Betty and Jim Wilson have around 20 butterfly bushes around their Kingston home that have attracted a swarm of butterflies this year.
Yellow and black tiger swallowtails were particularly attracted to the bushes one day last week.
Betty said she loves to garden but jokes she doesn’t know how.
“I try everything,” she said. “Sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesn’t”
The Wilsons, who have lived in Kingston since 1965 and raised their family of three daughters here, aren’t alone in noticing the beloved brightly colored insects. Others have reported seeing what seems to be an increase this year in the flutterings of this colorful creature.
