Butterfly garden - a no sew post


In random other news for this week, I got to see a butterfly being born this week.  Some kind soul gave one of my daughters this butterfly condo last fall.

With cooler weather coming, I decided to wait until a few weeks ago to send off for our butterfly eggs.  The kids really enjoyed seeing the caterpillars grow (quite quickly!).  This week the butterflies emerged, Painted Ladies!  I set them free yesterday.


Tookie happens to be a bug eater.  She was way too interested in these guys.  In fact, of our 5 caterpillars, only 4 made it out of their cocoons thanks to Tookie knocking over the condo a few times.  Poor little guy.

This was a great gift for little kids!  I highly recommend for a fun summer project.  Check out: http://www.insectlore.com/

  1. We got this for our daughter too... we're hoping to see our butterflies in another week or two. How funny.

I LOVE comments, they make my day! Most of the time I am too distracted to respond right away, but I DO read them...always.

When I respond, I usually do it via email. Sometimes Google makes this easy and sometimes it doesn't. I usually only reply when it is easy. Just sayin.

Obviously, I can't reply to you at all if you are a no reply blogger. Also, sorry to Anonymous commentors, too much spam lately. You will have to leave a comment another way.

Have a Super Sparkly Day!
