Attended this wonderful event and it deserves to becomes a regular one. Just the right partnership for the Mockingbird Garden up at 21st and n D st. City of Lake Worth . With two Butterfly enthusiast Rockee Rococo and Jory Gray Grozier, the timing could not have been better. Been following their enthusiasm on face book and Sunday they shared their Butterfly discoveries. There were hand crafted mock up replicas of the butterfly in it’s various stages for the kids to identify. and rewarded for their finds with gifts i.e. tickets to Butterfly World and coloring books depicting butterflies even Butterfly calendars were on hand.
A different take on the Easter Egg Hunt. It was wonderful Great timing as it was Easter and the last Sunday of the month breakfast at the Scottish Rite brought out many families. The garden was full with the early birds.
The various stages of the butterfly were reproduced if you look at this photo below the pupa is so small next to the one Rockee crafted. Photos were also nearby to identify what they were looking at. They were careful to keep it all natural and not a single plastic egg in sight.
An awesome experience for anyone who did not realize like myself that the only host the Monarch thrives on is the Milkweed plant. Want to get a Milkweed plant, I understand Smarty Plants on n Dixie has them. Thank you Rockee and Jory for igniting my curiosity.
