~ More Butterflies ~

Today I thought I would share a mosaic of how the butterflies grow on our patio. They REALLY do grow out here. Even my Mister has become infatuated with our butterflies...cocoons and all. He's out there looking for more all the time. He's cute. The middle picture on the bottom shows one that just hatched ( not sure if that is the proper term ) the cocoon was inside the birdcage so it was hard to get a good picture.

Thank you Shelia @ Note Songs for sharing the link to Laurie's blog ( and her tutorial was great ) so now....after almost a year....I can do a mosaic picture thingy~ YEAH! WOOHOO~ me taking a bow. :)

Just when the caterpillar thought the world was became a butterfly.

Have a beautiful day~ J

Congrats on learning how to do a mosaic picture! I always love seeing how people arrange their pictures in's so pretty. How wonderful that the butterflies feel so safe and welcomed in your pretty yard! I have alot of butterflies, but we've never had the priveledge of watching them transform from catepillars.
