We just love all of the beautiful flowers and butterflies!! We have seen a similar butterfly and the Butterfly House we went to visit!

The flowers are pretty, but the butterfly shots are amazing. We don't see many of them out and about around our house.

Dory you look gorgeous!
What beautiful butterflies, you've captured them so well in the photos.

Madi and Mom said...

Dory never in all my 14.5 years have I seen a polka dotted buttie pillar. WOW
Every single flower and buttie pillar you showed is in CA and WI were gorgeous.
I love hour momma displayed them too.

We are late the peeps had to take Dad's car in for an air bag recall. The dealership is so far away they thought they were in CA. MOL

Those are truly some beautiful flutterbies your Mom saw in Wisconsin and the flowers are so pretty too. But you are still our most favorite flutterbypup ever, Dory!!! Mom read an article about how bad weather in Mexico killed over a million monarch butterflies this year - so sad. Keep planting that milkweed.

So very beautiful!

Idaho PugRanch said...

Such beautiful buttie pillars. For some reason we don't see many buttie pillars here. We do get some Big moths sometimes.
Maybe we don't have the right kind of flowers. and the heat has taken most of the flowers - boo!
