Butterfly garden

Last week was such a busy week... and all about gardening and birthdays! I'm so excited!

We decided awhile back that we were going to put in a butterfly garden along a patch of bamboo in our back yard. Well, last week it went in... and I'm SO pleased!

The girls and I went shopping for the plants together, and chose each plant especially for its appeal to butterflies. There's a side benefit... the garden is attracting a lot of other attention... for example... we've seen a LOT of birds... this little guy!

And here's your hint about birthday plans... I haven't had a birthday party in probably 20 years... and this year I'm 40, and intending to embrace it fully (despite the fact that the number ALWAYS takes me by surprise!). I'm having a celebration of the soul... I invited people who feed my soul, and I'm decorating to my own taste, and we're having good food to nourish our souls. It's going to be SO much fun! I promise to post pictures after!
