Growing Butterflies

I woke to lovely news yesterday morning...

The warm start to 2014 boosted the number of butterflies including the critically endangered "High Brown Fritillary"...Hooray!

Ever since I was a little one I have had a love for butterflies. Yes I was one of those kids that ran around and around desperately  trying to catch one...I never did you will be pleased to know.

Any child's fascination with butterflies nowadays can be "fed" easily with the

Butterfly Garden Kits that you can buy. They can watch a caterpillar grow & let a butterfly go! This is on my family's "Wish list" for this year what a wonderful thing.

To end my little story I would like to share with you some of our beautiful butterfly fabrics. I know what a temptress I can be!
