Butterfly Wings

I've been writing another post in my head for a while now. But I can't seem to put it all the fragmented pieces together.

Until then, here are pictures of The Butterfly Haus at Wildseed Farms, just outside of Fredericksburg. It's a garden center, but they sell all kinds of things, they also have a gift shop and cafe.

In one of the empty water fountains was a little black kitten curled up and snoozing, with it's back against the cool stone. I pet him, but he was so content he barely opened his eyes before finding a new position.

The Butterfy Haus is just a screened in outdoor area, with a pond, several different flowers and tons of butterflies. Admission to the Farms is free but the butterfly haus has an admission of $5 and they encourage you to bring your camera- so I did. I had to get my $5 worth :-)

I took several pictures, but butterflies have a habit of flapping their wings (the nerve!) so a lot of them turned out blurry. I got a few good ones though.

Hi Monica!
Happy to hear that you enjoyed your time away. Amazing pictures of the butterflies. I don't think we have that many different kinds here. At least I haven't seen any:) Thanks for sharing. Katie
