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!
I am Jersey born and raise but for a couple of years I lived in Peoria Arizona. In my perfect world I would have a home in New Jersey and Arizona. That would make me a very happy person. At times I would long for Arizona and those feelings were triggered today when I reviewed a fellow bloggers post, iRiPhotography. This picture inspired me to pull up some of my desert picks.
Prior to moving to Arizona I never though that I would find the desert calming but it did just that, calmed me on those bad days. I would just get in my Saturn and drive up route 17 and just get off a random exit to see what was there and I was always able to find a view that I liked.
Thanks Joseph for the walk down memory lane!
