Throw Back Thursday

When I lived in Arizona I visited the Desert Botanical Gardens in Phoenix to view the Butterfly House.  There were quite a few varieties just politely flying around or blending in with the surrounding plants.

For the people who were wearing light-colored clothing the butterflies would land on them.  It seemed that they loved the brightness.

We were told by the staff that we could lore butterflies were ever we wanted by leaving trays of sugar-water and fruit laying out and they will be sure to come.

Here are just a few pictures of my visit in April of 2010.


Do you spot the butterfly that is blending in with the scenery?

Thanks for visiting!

  1. When I lived in Danville, Va., I planted a butterfly bush outside of my window, and would love to watch the butterflies, bees, and hummingbirds come partake in their meals. You have a lovely selection of butterflies in this set, Robin. Nice share. 🙂
