We had a wonderful day at the Huntsville (Ala.) "Tanical" Gardens, as 3 1/2-year-old grandson Capt. Adorable says. The Butterfly House is his favorite, and his mom has trained him well in the delicate art of putting sugar-water on your finger and being patient. Of course, he still runs around yelling, "Hey, butterflies! Come get some food!" And he forgets all about the concept of a light touch by the time he gets to the box turtles. But still.
Did they have the scarecrow trail up yet?
What a gorgeous photograph. It would be quite at home on the covers of several magazines. Beautiful expression!
Mary — Yes! They are so cute, too. I’ve got more photos I’ll post.
Carolyn — You are too kind! I think we just lucked out with a slow-moving butterfly.
Wonderful photo that we just had to share on our Facebook page. Thanks for you kind words in your e-mail and we hope that you continue to visit the Garden.
