What makes the spring so colorful? Well besides all the plants coming back to life there are the butterflies filling the air and making us smile as they float by just for our pleasure. We do need to remember they are an insect, it is easy to forget. The Monarch is probably the most recognized, and the Painted Lady lives the longest, for up to 12 months. Butterflies remind us that no matter how ugly things get around us they can always become something beautiful given enough time.
How to celebrate – Learn all the different types of butterflies (there are probably more than you think). Start a butterfly collection (seems a little morbid to me). Enjoy nature, they go perfect with your flower garden from a few days ago!
