Our Little Explorer

Little Explorer

Lilypad Princess cannot wait for the butterflies to come back. The first thing she did once the weather turned nice was pull out her butterfly net and bug house. Saturday afternoon she and Lilypad Dad went on a bug hunt.

Checking out the bug

I'm not sure what this little bug was, but she checked it out up close with her magnifying class, then carried him around in the bug house for a while. But she is very good about letting the bugs and butterflies go, when she thinks they have been gone too long and miss their mommies she opens the house and sends them home.

She's probably just at the right age for a butterfly garden with Mommy's help, of course. My daughter had one and it was so neat watching them and then letting the go.

Oooh, can't wait for the butterflies to return. She's all ready! So cute in her hat. Your garden is looking beautiful. Can't believe all the yellow.

We have a butterfly bush in the garden next to our kitchen door. Yesterday we finally got around to planting the butterfly mix seeds, hopefully they will grow and we'll have lots of butterflies this year. I saw a commercial for thing where they send you catepillars and you watch them turn into butterflies then release them, I've been thinking about getting that for her too.
