Regina Geoghan reports: "Yay - finally saw an American Lady at the butterfly garden Monday. Thought it was Painted Lady until I downloaded photo and checked my book." (Thanks, Regina!)
Today is the 16th anniversary of the last flight of TWA Flight 800, which crashed into the Atlantic Ocean off Long Island on July 17, 1996.
One of the crew members on that flight was a young Rutherford resident named Jill Ann Ziemkiewicz, for whom DeKorte Park’s beautiful butterfly garden is named.
The South Bergenite ran a column about the butterfly garden two years. The link is here.
Since then, the butterfly garden has been redone, and we’d like to think it is more beautiful than ever.
In honor of Butterfly Day this Sunday, we thought we'd offer this beauty, taken late last week at Jill's Garden at DeKorte. What is it?
