◎Reflections from the Whispering of Butterflies team:
        All of the above were food plants which the teacher had grown in the butterfly garden for years. Among them, milkweeds were the most special since they were not only nectar source plants but also food plants, which is also the reason why Grandpa Ma grew so many milkweeds. Moreover, there grew a number of birthworts on the fences of the wall, on which there were often larvae and pupae of 紅紋鳳蝶. I had once torn down one of the leaves and brought the larva home for rearing. It seemed like these larvae were healthier because it was easy for them to become butterflies, hence we could see the importance of natural environment.
