a visit to the butterfly house

on sunday we took a trip to creekside gardens with my parents to check out their butterfly house.  it was amazing.  i have never seen so many butterflies in one place in my life.  there were hundreds of butterflies and so many beautiful flowers too.

we learned about the butterfly life cycle, and saw several butterfly chrysalises.  we were even able to feed a few butterflies with cotton swabs dipped in red gatorade . . . who knew that butterflies love watermelon and red gatorade!












love, laurie

I love the photos, especially the ones where the butterflies are posing on what looks like lavender spikes. I'd like to visit that place some time.
