"Beautiful and graceful, varied and enchanting, small but approachable, butterflies lead you to the sunny side of life. And everyone deserves a little sunshine." ~Jeffrey Glassberg

I drove out to Norwich today to visit the Chelsea Gardens Foundation Butterfly Pavilion. They are just graceful, gorgeous wee beasties. They were plentiful - The New London Day says there were 1,000!

The flowers and plants were gorgeous...

So peaceful, just taking it all in.

They loved to land on everyone and every thing...

But this was the only little guy who landed on me. (Which I was really ok with!)

It's over tomorrow (Sunday) but I'm told they're releasing them into the "wild". =)

Was definitely worth the trip!


  1. Awesome stuff!!!!! Love the last two especially!

  2. stunning and breath taking. i wish i knew about it! there is a place up near Deerfield, MA though, isn't there? I would love to check it out sometime. the sepia toned image is awesome. what beautiful textures.

  3. OH WOW! I love your pictures! Very nice! This place looks awesome! I really want to go here it looks so cool.
