All wines are not made from grapes. Wine can be made from any fruit able to produce juice. However, it is best to drink alternative wines (wines not made from grapes) quicker than you would tradition grape wines.


While grape wines can hold for years and years, wines made from other fruits have a much quicker shelf life. If you buy a non-grape wine, drink it within a few weeks of buying it to ensure quality and flavor.


While there are a few ways to judge the health of certain types of wine, the easiest way is to go for wines with tannins. Tannins are found in red wine and contain a lot of antioxidants. Popular red wines include Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Malbec.


Similar to non-grape wines, the tannins in red wine eventually breakdown. So, if you are drinking wine for the tannins, make sure to buy wine that is only a few years old.

Is it possible that the Duchess of Cambridge’s first-born child will be a daughter?

The Duchess accidentally started off a sentence using the first few letters of the word “daughter”, but then stopped before she could fully enunciate the word.


Many in the press were aware of her slip, and tried to press her for more details, but the Duchess would not budge and kept insisting that she did not know the gender of what her baby will be.

How A Butterfly Garden Benefits Our Ecosystem

As more and more land is cleared for development, whole ecosystems are destroyed. Without trees and plants to feed on, the insects can’t survive. As the insects disappear, so do the birds that feed on them. This domino effect keeps going right up the food chain, and it is happening more often each day. Many people love to plant bird and butterfly gardens to attract these beautiful creatures, as well as other wildlife into their backyards. By doing this they are, sometimes unknowingly, helping to rebuild an ecosystem.

When you plant your garden you choose flowers that will attract butterflies, and if you choose certain plants, you can attract a specific kind of butterfly. Many of these insects prefer a certain type of plant to feed on, and to lay eggs. With the butterflies and other insects, birds will be naturally attracted to your garden. Birds can consume an amazing amount of insects and caterpillars when they are nesting or feeding their young, and while most of us don’t prefer to have an overabundance of insects in our garden, they are necessary if you want to attract birds. Eastern Bluebirds love to sit on a fence or low branch and watch the ground for bugs, and red-winged blackbirds will eat both seeds and insects, but during the summer months they prefer to search through weedy plants for insect life. Both of these are lovely additions to your backyard garden.

Some of the best flowers to attract butterflies into your garden are also quite easy to grow. Yarrow is a lovely flower, with lacy blooms of yellow, or shades of red. It grows well in almost any soil, and is drought and heat resistant. Some others that will do well in less than perfect conditions are lavender, Shasta daisies, Echinacea, and Asters.

Even if you plant your garden strictly for its aesthetic value you will attract some insects, but most of the flowers that butterflies love are beautiful and bright colored so they would fit in well. If you plant even a few types of flowers that appeal to butterflies, you will be helping to establish a place for other wildlife to flourish also.
