One of my favorite areas of the Butterfly Wonderland in Scottsdale, Arizona is what I call the nursery. It’s so amazing to behold nature’s transformations.
My husband is known for his crazy sweet tooth. As a Christmas gift last year, I called upon a dear friend of ours — an amazing pastry chef — to make H a special dessert each month. For April she surprised him with this Easter-themed white layer cake with lemon curd and Italian buttercream. He was in heaven!
My favorite nature center supports a unity garden. Fencing surrounds the perimeter to keep the critters out. Surprisingly, hefty sunflower heads dangle from ribbons attached to the posts. I’m sure that the waving decor is meant to deter curious wildlife, but I’ll bet the birds love the available seeds.
