The Open House Report

The Open House was a fantastic success! We had 162 visitors sign the guestbook. It was a non-stop whirlwind. Once the action started, we were so busy that we didn’t have a chance to take pictures. :)

Now they call it Butterfly Education and Awareness Day (BEAD), but it used to be National Butterfly Awareness Day, and that’s our banner that catches visitors’ attention:

The butterfly garden in the front yard is new this year! It got lots of compliments:

The official greeter…

Lynn the Greeter!

…helps get you signed in, entered for the raffle, and in possession of a helpful handout:

Refeshments were available both days; this was Saturday’s:
