What Vegetable Plant Yields this Flower?

Not only does the garden produce delicious vegetables, it also yields magnificent vegetable plant flowers. Do you know what this one is? If you guessed a zucchini then you're  correct.
Bianca began with a photograph of the zucchini flower in the garden.
She drew the plant and flower in pencil and then used acrylic paint to complete her work.
The tiny ladybugs added just the right touch of color!

Why do we love Butterflies?

A trip to Blue Willow Butterfly Conservatory always leaves us feeling an affinity for these lovely insects. A childhood myth kept us believing that most butterflies only lived for a day when in fact most live for a week and some up to a year. One year we discovered that monarch butterflies migrate from Canada to Mexico in the fall. Image!
