Free Friday: Butterfly Plant Poke

Happy Friday everyone!  I hope it's as bright and beautiful where you live as it is here in New York.  It's not exactly warm, but that sunshine sure is nice!  The trees are getting so green, and the birds are singing.  Oh, spring is wonderful!

Speaking of spring, pretty soon we'll start seeing lovely butterflies in our gardens.  I love butterflies, their bright and lovely wings, their gentle fluttery nature.  If I were ever forced to be a bug, I'd definitely choose to be a butterfly.  That's why I decided to make a pretty butterfly plant poke! 

Butterfly Plant Poke
