The Flight of Butterflies

The boys and I just watched this sweet documentary on Netflix about Fred and Norah Urquhart’s quest to find out where the monarchs were flying to. Theirs is such a sweet story of a lifetime of scientific discovery and the cinematography of the butterflies is so breathtakingly beautiful!Collages168

I’ve always wanted to go to the “secret” spot they go to hibernate. Just imagine millions of butterflies swirling around your head!  Oliver is determined to go too. He said, “we’ll catch fish at the river, so we can have some food to barbecue when we live there.” I love his little optimistic mind! I told him we’ll plant flowers butterflies like so they can come to us instead.

I painted these pieces a couple of months ago. I’m a monarch lover!

  1. One great spot to see monarchs is close to Pismo Beach in Central California. You can get a beach rental that is reasonable there, too.

  2. How awesome is THIS?!? So glad you gave it another try. I love how the fact that it starts with &#2t20;8his was absolutely the last time” works for the fact that the “last time” led you to find The One. Perfect.
