Butterflies gather around mud puddles to get the minerals they need. This hand-painted ceramic Butterfly Puddling Stone is a beautiful way to create your own puddling station. Place it in a sunny location among your flowers where butterflies can sunbathe. Fill the well with sand, mix in a pinch of salt, and pour water over it until a puddle forms on the surface. As the water evaporates, it leaves behind valuable salts and minerals that butterflies need. Once butterflies know where to find these minerals, they'll return regularly. Placing pieces of overripe fruit on the stone is another way to attract butterflies.
