Garden Party

Today was a fabulous day here at Osan. We had the big Garden-Breaking Party for our brand new kids community garden. The muckety-mucks all came out with their shovels, only to find themselves outnumbered by the mini-gardeners who had thoroughly pre-tossed the ceremonial dirt.

The whole thing was wonderful and very exciting. But here's the very best part: just as we were getting ready to leave, a single orange and black butterfly fluttered in landed on the ground right in the center of the garden space. It is definitely not butterfly season yet so the presence of the butterfly is somewhat unfathomable, and you all know how I love a mystery. I like to think it's a sign that the garden will be a smashing success. Maybe it just heard us talking about the butterfly garden and can't wait to move in. Or, perhaps it was simply attracted to the colorful flowers planted in potties.

I'm surprised you didn't recognize Wilma. Or maybe it was Joe.

Weren't you waiting for a butterfly awhile ago? Maybe it just got lost on its journey to the other side of the planet. Or wait, was it a hummingbird?

Funny, I had the same thought.

It was a great day! We are so thankful for you.
