Butterflies In The House

 In my homeschool blog, I posted about the butterflies we farmed. (If you are curious on the process of butterfly transformation, you should check this link.)


Most pupae are now hatched and we have butterflies in the house. We were excited to see the first one, then the next two. We saw 6 of them in 3 days. But now that the homeschoolers are familiar with the process, we let go of the pupae out of the box and place them in a safe spot in the garden.


 Our garden has now transformed into a real butterfly garden.



Our garden is very small yet there's so much excitement going there. 

Beautiful and graceful, varied and enchanting, small but approachable,
butterflies lead you to the sunny side of life.  
And everyone deserves a little sunshine.

Butterflies are amazing in their beauty. I've been seeing quite a few around here lately. Usually they're gone by this time of year.
I loved the photos in the rose garden too :-)
Have a blessed weekend.
Blessings,
Marcia

So beautiful. We don't get many butterflies by our place. Maybe because of all the birds?
