we released the butterflies the day we left for the coast over Memorial day weekend. it was harder to part with them than we expected. they just appeared content eating the orange slices in their garden and eh hem... mating half the day away. we kept them the maximum two weeks. believe it or not several of them weren't so eager to flee. they hung around in our hands or on our shoulder. a few stayed close in the grass for a few minutes, or in our neighbors front yard tree.
Coach enjoyed the butterfly garden. i let him look and paw at their home a little bit. he was pretty curious and probably would have hurt them bad. he's gentle but a giant.
we enjoyed growing butterflies. can't wait to do that again somtime.
