    Oh that is right - Angels look down from above and the devil looks up from below. I remember that.

    That is what we are going for Patty and is the reason why we are expanding the garden to include some shade so maybe we can entice the elusive Zebra Longwing Butterfly. They are one of the few butterflies that prefers shade to sun.

    Butterflies are so beautiful. Several years ago, my husband and I lived in a little house that was right smack-dab in the middle of a monarch butterfly migration path. The butterflies would swoop down from a treeline north of us, across the yard and up over the walls of the house as they went toward Mexico. If we stood outside during a "blizzard" of butterflies, we could be surrounded by thousands of them whirling past us - what an incredible experience!
