Butterflies in Your Bouquet!

Two weeks ago, my kids and I released the butterflies we raised from caterpillars. As our painted ladies fluttered away, I marveled at their delicate beauty. I was reminded of Mrs. Donahue, an elderly neighbor from my childhood, who had an amazing collection of butterfly brooches. It was a lovely morning.

As you can imagine, when I saw this butterfly bouquet at the Martha Stewart Weddings website, my heart skipped a beat.

So pretty - and simple to make on your own. And if a whole bouquet of butterflies is a bit too much for you, maybe just one or two would do the trick. Our painted ladies would appreciate it.
