Behind the Scenes...


My new box of wings!
Yesterday I was lucky enough to get another bag of wings from the Butterfly Museum. This time they figured out that Im going to be there a lot more often and let me into their freezer to just get them myself! To get there, I had to breeze through the indoor gardens, a magical world with tons of butterflies surrounding me, fluttering by me. Then, quickly again through a labrynth of doors and into a tiny room with all sorts of projects happening behind the scenes. Including a woman who showed me 5 little birds that hatched that morning, all cuddled together and opening their beaks for food. This is where I get my supplies? I love it. My days always have a twist.
