My babies have all grown up!

Post  Retired Member 1 on 7/12/2010, 11:45 am

I'm breathless! How beautiful and wonderful!

The past few days I have found myself going to the garden with my snips AND my camera.

What a beautiful picture of that butterfly.
I love them and they are so lovely to watch flitting from flower to flower.
Thank you for the picture.

Great pictures. We all have to remember that our babies do grow up but they are still our babies.

I hope they come to visit your garden on a regular basis.
