Bead fairies and Butterflies....

I took a little break from cleaning today, since I only have one more space to tackle. If you know if too much bleach inhalation causes flu symptoms, please let me know....other reason I didn't clean today. I am totally convinced that there is a bead fairy someplace that comes and messes once a week while I'm sleeping. And I totally wouldn't be surprised if she and my son were in cohoots with one another.

So, I took my mom and Aunt out to the Louis Ginter Botanical Gardens here in town to see the Butterfly Exhibition and gardens and thought I'd share a few pictures of my trip with you tonight. the exhibit closes everyday at 5, so the butterflies can rest. I can definitely get with that. I can't commentate on too much because I have no idea of names or species, but please enjoy the stroll.

Little gingerbread house outside in the conservatory...

He finally kept still long enough.....


Not very friendly, but beautiful and huge, this is actually I moth I believe...


Just around the corner, we found this guy...


And she was just out for everyone to see...no camaflouge in her game...


The stance of Royalty...look at the curled, toungy thing...

the mist came on, so this was a little foggy, cleaned it up the best I could, but this butterfly was beautiful...


here's Mrs. Prissy again, she thought we might enjoy her wings open for a photo..


This is the conservatory we were in...


This was actually inside the conservatory...


in the gardens...


back in the conservatory...


getting dizzy?? back in the gardens...

I've seen these plants, but never seen them with the blue coloring, I thought they were beautiful...Of course I don't know the name...

And these were my very favorite!! With my blue thumb these are exactly what I need in my garden...they are called:

Hope you enjoyed the photos. They will be getting another shipment of butterflies in next week, I may have to take another stroll over, to see what flew in :) ..

Hi Dee,

Thanks for stopping by my blog today and leaving a comment! That was so sweet!!!
Oh, you have one of those faeries too? Mine just goes through the entire cottage and messes things up. I'm horrified each morning when I wake, but off to work I must go.
The thatched cottage is darling!!! Wish I had one in my yard too.

Have a lovely evening.

xoxo Cori

Gina - they really were pretty to see, I thought they'd be flying all around and I'd have to swat them, but they weren't. I had to watch my feet more, as they were laying around on the floor.

Hi Cor, thanks for stopping by my blog as well.
