March may come in like a lion and go out like a lamb, but in our book, it floats like a butterfly, too. Peeking flowers are a wonderful sign of Spring, but we’ll take the glimpse of a flittering butterfly any day.
So that’s part of the reason we’re excited for this month’s butterfly event at the Missouri Botanical Garden. (The other part is that we love, love, love the name: March Morpho Mania®, and yes, they like it so much it’s registered!) Throughout the month of March, those electric-blue morpho butterflies, thousands of them, will be filling the Tropical Conservatory at the Garden’s Sophia M. Sachs Butterfly House.
There’s also educational stuff about butterfly farms in Costa Rica, but our eyes will be glued to these marvelous morphos.
For those of you who don’t live near Chesterfield, Missouri, or for those of you who do but just can’t get enough of these winged harbingers of Spring, you’re in luck: we at oopsydaisy love butterflies too. Some of our favorite artists have celebrated them, and they’re available as canvas wall art for kids’ rooms or any other room where you want to take wing!
