Butterfly Garden....!!

I was very busy for a few days because my cousins were at home.
We had a lot of fun playing together and today morning we left for the play park close by for making the day more interesting .

The best was that we saw a board before the play park leading to butterfly garden . “BUTTERFLY GARDEN” exclaimed my cousins. they were much curious for the butterflies than the play park .so do I …

Of we lead to the butterfly garden which I have never heard of and sounded strange.
Soon we reached the magnificent garden with climbers as a huge door way. The garden was crowded with colorful flowers and shrubs which was very beautiful. But we were not able to spot much of butterflies except for a few commonly seen variety.

We were disappointed to see that the butterfly garden had everything except butterflies.
Any way we got into the garden squeezing the doorway made of climbers.
Oh my God!! There we saw lots and lots of butterflies flapping close to us.
Where did they all come from ???
We were surprised to see…..!
Only then did we notice that all the butterflies were hiding by the flowers drinking the nectar. Great isn’t it ?

Really a great idea of a live garden……I had a huge thought about how they managed to attract butterflies by providing the essential flower plants.
We all had a loud cry of joy seeing the butterflies…..

My God !! I must admit that this well remain as a great experience in my life for I have not seen anything like this ~ …!!

Hi Susan:)

This is a very exciting post. Even if see one colorful butterfly I am thrilled. If I see many butterflies fluttering around it will be a magnificent sight.

It is said that if you have a lot of flowering plants around your house, you can attract many butterflies. Try it if you are interested in plants and if you have space around your house.

Your post reminded of my younger days when I used to chase butterflies to catch them. Some times I could catch them and sometimes I cannot. But it was great fun.

Have a nice day Susan:)

That is really neat. I have a butterfly garden at home as well. And butterflies are among my favorite group of animals on the planet.
