We found a new local butterfly garden to visit this year. I had heard about it from a few people and then I saw a coupon on Groupon for it, so it was a no brainer.
It was nothing fancy and the outside was kind of run down, but the butterflies were BEAUTIFUL, the prettiest I have ever seen.
I guess the month of July is when the population peaks, but even when we went at the end of August, there were plenty to see.
The colors of many of them looked as though they were painted.
One of these butterflies attached itself to me when I walked in and it stayed on my shoulder most of the time as I walked around. When it opens, it is a beautiful blue butterfly, a blue morpho apparently.
Little Miss capturing some of the beauty.
So, if you're local and you're looking to see some beautiful butterflies, check out the Butterfly Zoo next summer.
Happiness is a butterfly, which when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp, but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you.
