No strings.....

It's a long story how I arrived at this week's challenge.
My wonderful husband assembled this arbor for a few of my orchids.
I bought a passion plant vine to cover it to protect the orchids from the sun
and to attract butterflies.
That it did, but then caterpillars appeared all over the vine gobbling up the new leaves.
"That is completely normal" the garden store said.
"You will have lots of heliconian butterflies this spring
and your vine will rejuvenate itself, even stronger than before."


So I started with a butterfly.
Stay tuned and I will let you know if in fact I do have butterflies.


  1. I love your tile. I have painted garden stepping stones and your tile reminds me of a few that I have painted.

  2. Your butterfly is really cute and I love how you have different tangles on the outside edges of its wings.

  3. A lovely butterly, so in your tile. Of course you will have butterflies in your garden, trust nature!

  4. Beautiful, Susan. I love butterflies in my garden, unfortunately I don't love the caterpillars that follow :)


I love hearing from you! Have a wonderful day and come back soon.
