Vacation Photos: Butterfly Garden

In the beginning of August, we went on vacation. One of the places we visited was the Albuquerque Botanic Garden. I hadn’t been in years, and it is just amazing now, with the exhibits they have added and the ways the plants have grown into place and you can really see the vision the designers had for the garden. I have more photos of the gardens to share, but today I want to share the photos of the butterfly garden.

The butterflies are everywhere. Watch out for them as you walk along the board walk.

The butterfly garden is new since I last visited the Botanic Garden, and I was amazed at the beauty and lushness of the enclosed garden, and the number and variety of the butterflies.

Some of these photos were taken by me, and some by my husband.


Tuesday Treasure: Butterfly Tassel in Pink and Orange

Gorgeous yellow and orange beaded tassel with pink beaded butterflies. Each butterfly is hand-beaded with glass Japanese seed beads. The beaded fringes are finished with vintage orange beads. Update: Sold! A purple one is coming soon. Contact me for details.

The tassel arrives rolled in felt, which protects it from tangling during shipping and also makes an awesome gift wrap.

Be sure and check out the rest of my Etsy shop for more beautiful beaded tassels and other handcrafted items.
