Mankind’s survival depends largely on the ability of pollinators to fertilize the flowers on our crops. Due to the extensive use of insecticides, that ability is threatened. I've made it a personal project to create an environment in my garden where pollinators of all types get a chance to thrive. They need not only nectar plants as a source of daily food, but also host plants that provide a nursery and food to take the caterpillars from egg to chrysalis. One of the most varied, but vital, is Passiflora or passion vine. It is a host plant to both the state butterfly of Florida, the zebra longwing, as well as the gulf fritillary. Depicting butterflies, caterpillars, and chrysalises, my linocut images tell that story.
