On a recent visit to our oldest daughter's (she is one of two twins and happens to be older by one minute-I posted on the other twin Wednesday) home in southeastern Alabama Mr. Fix-it and I made time to visit Callaway Gardens. On this day we had time to visit just a few of the many parts of the garden, and since it was very cold outside we started at the Butterfly Pavilion. The cute little girl peeking out of the cutout is my thirteen month old granddaughter. You'll see more of her in this post. Her name is Adella.
Inside the pavilion it was warm and cozy. I easily felt as though I was in a tropical paradise like Martinique or something. Butterflies soared all around us but you won't see many in this post. I have saved them for another post to come up soon. There were SO many.
Being right around the holidays poinsettias were front and center in the pavilion. Adella seemed a bit fascinated by this display.
Here is Adella being held by her Grampa 'Grumps'-our fun moniker for Mr. Fix-it (he is not grumpy at all-I promise!). The adults were fascinated with the case of chrysalises but even though Adella was looking toward the case the soon to be butterflies really did not hold her attention.
But boy were they amazing! I will show more of this display in my butterfly post. These butterflies were all in the process of hatching out of their chrysalises. Once hatched with wings dried they will be transferred to the big pavilion for all to enjoy.
People such as my daughter Christine and her daughter Adella....
