Nana comes to see me every other year and I've never taken her to Fredericksburg so when she began planning for her trip this year, she told me she wanted to see that town during her visit. So, last Saturday that's just what we did. While the wildflowers enroute were a disappointment, the butterflies in the Butterfly Hause inside Wildseed Farms couldn't have been more cooperative.
Marty spied some fish swimming just beneath the surface of the water and was showing them to Heather.
Of course he had to go for a closer look. I was sure his boots were going to slip on the wet rocks!
Once we arrived in Fredericksburg, the most interesting flowers we found were inside the Butterfly Hause.
There were many butterflies that made it easy to capture their pictures. This one, however was very elusive. The white ones didn't stay in one place long enough to snap a photo. This is the only photo I managed to get of one of the white butterflies.

Butterflies even landed on each of us at least once.

This butterfly landed on my jacket so Marty snapped this photo.
