beautiful butterflies


Butterflies go fluttering by
On colored wings that catch the eye.
On wings of orange, and silvery blue,
On wings of golden yellow, too.
Butterflies float in the air,
Making their homes most anywhere:
The rainforest, field, and prairie land,
On mountaintops, and desert sand.
If winter brings the cold and snow,
To warmer climates, off they go!
Returning home the following spring,
Beautiful butterflies on the wing!

...a daunting task turned into a very fun project this morning,
and we completed our wooden butterfly!
personally, i thought it was beautiful in the simple wooden "color,"
but of course, j and t wanted to paint it.
i guess a butterfly wouldn't really be a butterfly
if not arrayed in all its beautiful colors.

we read our new book about the life cycle of a butterfly
and took an impromptu trip to the ft. worth botanical gardens...
