Butterflies by the Bay

You may remember this Butterfly Garden from last year.
Located in Seaside, New Jersey it was planted by and is maintained by the local residents.
I love that concept!
We didn't really see any butterflies, but the garden is well kept and the sign is new.








The Cosmos were gorgeous.


Way off in the distance, more to the right, you can see the bridge that leads into Seaside.
And the view, it can't be beat. If I were a butterfly, I would definitely hang out here!

  3. It is a gorgeous view, isn't it. Such a pretty garden. Perhaps the butterflies are playing hide and seek with you. As ever, gorgeous photos.

  4. My wife saw a moth last night and claimed it was a butterfly. We they are closely related, they certainly are different
