John Watts, an entomologist, at the Texas Discovery Gardens in Dallas, Texas welcomed us to the butterfly exhibit. He is so knowledgable, and what an excellent teacher! The children sat listening to his every word and would answer all of his questions. Around noon time he introduced the new butterflies to the garden and we watched as they gradually flew off towards the light.
John has been most gracious and invited my “special friend” Lucy to come and visit with the butterflies in hopes that they might light on her. If they are anything like the ducks and geese at White Rock Lake, they may be a bit leary of her and keep their distance but I know for a fact that she will sit very still! Lucy is looking forward to her butterfly adventure!

The crazy women thank everyone at the butterfly garden for their hospitality and we hope to return again, real soon!
