Butterflies are an easy distraction for me and a great way to avoid laundry, or any kind of housework for that matter. We have been working for several years to create a bird and butterfly sanctuary in our yard. While the trees still have a long way to go, the flowers are coming along nicely and we have seen a fair selection of butterflies. The next few posts will be dedicated to showing them off.
