What a beautiful day today.  The sun was shining and it was not too hot.  We took a little drive to find a place to buy soil for our little garden on our back porch.  We made a marvelous find.  15 minutes from our house is an organic farm that sells fresh soil.  But better than that was the butterfly habitat on the property of the farm.  We actually got to see a butterfly breaking free from the chrysalis.  As it worked to be free we saw its wings dry out and start to spread.  It was marvelous.  They have a small lecture room where they teach school field trips about the life of a butterfly.  As they raise the butterflys there they have them at all different stages of the life cycle before moving them to the gardens to fly among the beautiful flowers and trees.
We came home and transplanted our seedlings and we now have our self-reliance garden on our back porch.  Tomatoes, peppers, lettuce, spinach, cilantro, and basil.  We are hoping to get some zuchini seeds and get them planted.  Nobody here knows about zuchini and what delicious muffins it makes. We are back home safe and sound and the rains have started again.
