Butterfly Fairy

As we toured the garden yesterday butterflies fluttered around pentas and porterweed in the long beds on each side of a grass path.

The little visitor exclaimed, "It's a BUTTERFLY Garden!" as butterflies fluttered toward her. She went home with a paper bag of 'Rose de Rescht' petals secured at the top with a huge tissue paper rose.

Children fair as meek-eyed angels,
Garlands in their locks entwined,
Down into the flowery valley,
Singing, dancing, gayly wind.
--Uhland

I look forward to comments and questions and lively discussion of gardening and related ideas.
