Flutterbies flutterbies Pretty little flutterbies

**Apologies for late posting, almost forgot**

 

Last week I wrote about how I was looking forward to going to the Ft. Worth Botanic Gardens. I was also using a Groupon, and based on a friend’s horror, was expecting a snafu or a fight over using the Groupon. I went with three other couples, one engaged, one dating for a little while, one not quite official at the time (At least not on facebook!) But, we got there, and it took a little time to wander through all the gardens to get to the main building (conference rooms, gift shop, bathrooms). When we arrived, we saw a wedding starting and lordy mercy, that was one Barbie doll wedding. If you’re not married and you plan on getting married, do not torture the man with barbie hot pink and silver. There’s just no reason to be that mean to the man you’re with forever (or not so forever if you believe in divorce). I took a few photos at arrival.

Botanic Gardens of Ft. Worth's stylish entrance.

Frog ponds open up the place, and you're told to look out for the small living amphibians.

We made it inside at the 10:30 viewing.

We didn’t even have an issue with the Groupons! I’m sure because they had so many using them that last few days.

We made it in A Beautiful Blue Morpho stopped to pose once I blew lightly on his wings to open him up. 

They have a set up to show cocoons of different butterfly species and the chrysalis that they undergo.

A place where you could see the butterflies up close and in person.

Humid & Hot

Hot & humid, be prepared to sweat it out! Tropical butterflies need the sauna.

      Thanks! I had a few land on my bright colored shirt. I like having a variety of topics with structure. 🙂
