Butterflies start appearing in Door County mid-May. Have you noticed any butterflies in July? This season the numbers have not been as high as other summers because of the cooler spring we had this year. The good news, due to the recent heat wave in July, the numbers are increasing.
There are about 50 species in Wisconsin. In Door County, 27 of the 50 species have been reported. One of the easiest butterflies to see flying is the yellow tiger swallowtail. My favorite will always be the Monarch butterfly.
Did you know that butterflies are sun worshipers, that seldom you would see on a cloudy day. It seems the sun provides them with the power of flight.
While in Door County, see if you can find the 27 species that have been reported. I know I’ve seen one, the Monarch!

Don’t miss out on the fun of picking your own cherries. Northern Door will be ready for picking in a few weeks, but you can count on picking cherries now in Southern Door. If you aren’t up for picking cherries, our many farm markets have cherries already picked for you.
If you still looking for a room to stay, think of us!
Happy Cherry Picking!
Eight miles south of the Egg Harbor Lodge is a new wine-tasting room that just opened in Carlsville. Red Oak Winery owner’s Gigi and Andy Wagener have moved from their operation in Sturgeon Bay to 5781 Hwy 42 in Carlsville.
The Red Oak winery opened in 2004 and had been at the previous location since 2012. The new tasting room opened officially on July 4 – exactly 16 years after its original opening. Red Oak features red, white, semi-sweet, fruit and desert wines.
Visit their new tasting room Sunday – Thursday, 10 am – 4 pm; and Friday – Saturday, 10 am – 5 pm.
