Raising and Releasing Butterflies

Some butterflies emerge and are ready to fly...

others need a little more time, 
I am always available for whatever they need.
Yesterday, I released 2...
it is quite heartwarming and satisfying to see them fly off.
I had 52 chrysalis at the start of spring, I have released 16 so far.

I have lots of baby bunnies hopping around the yard.
It is impossible to get a good picture, they are always moving and playing with each other.
I am sharing this terrible picture as I feel I will never get a good one before they are grown.

The weather was beautiful last evening so we went to 
Shore Fresh
for dinner and we were able to eat at an outside table.
 The fried shrimp are large, fresh, lightly breaded and delicious. 
The french fries are fresh cut.

I went for my first bike ride of the season a few evenings ago, on my
Bluebird of Happiness
all went well, no falls, life is good!


  1. Wonderful pictures and the shrimp are amazing!

  2. It is nice the butterflies are leaving a little at a time :)
    That bunny is too cute, like his little spot of white.
    We haven't ate out at a restaurant yet but if we do it will have to be outside first that's for sure, hubby loves shrimp he would enjoy this meal.

  3. Hello, Debbie

    Love your butterflies and the bunny is adorable. The shrimp looks delicious! Happy Friday, enjoy your weekend!

  4. I am impressed that you raised the chrysalises and now you have butterflies! They are like children!
    Beautiful photos!

  5. Butterflies, bunnies, food? Love them all ;) Always enjoy hearing about your butterflies. Such beauties!

  6. A yard full of bunnies! Lucky you to have so much cuteness in your back yard.

  7. Oh, I'd love to have bunnies in our yard... of course with the cats, that's not an option. But that bunny face is too cute!
    And as I've mentioned before, releasing butterflies is a truly magical event. I released one years ago on the morning of my surgery ... and knew everything was going to be alright.

  8. I can imagine the joy of seeing yet another butterfly fly off to fulfill its life.

  9. Oh, that sweet baby bunny!

  10. I'm glad to see the butterflies continue to do well! Baby bunnies are hilarious to watch! The shrimp dinner looks fantastic!

  11. It's nice to see the butterflies doing so well. The shrimp and fries look delicious. I hope you enjoyed them :0)

  12. Lovely butterflies and a very cute bunny.
    Pleased to read you've been out and about on your first bike ride of the season.

    All the best Jan
