Touched by a butterfly!

Looking for a place to take your children on the holidays or you want to spend some quiet time in nature?There is a quaint little shelter for the flying jewels..the butterflies... just right in our neighborhood:) The place is Oh Farms which is on Bah Soon road off Sembawang Road.They have a butterfly lodge,facility for hydroponics and a small herb garden as well.Entry is charged at 5$ per person.You also get DIY butterfly rearing kit for 5$.

Using this space to have a few of my favorite quotes about butterfly :)

Like a butterfly evolving, we must love each stage we pass through. Be not judgmental of yourself. You are becoming a wondrous butterfly....

A touch of nature ...made her so happy!! 

May the wings of the butterfly kiss the sun.

And find your shoulder to light on.

To bring you luck, happiness and riches.

Today, tomorrow and beyond.

Life is like a butterfly – You go through changes before you become something beautiful.

Few of the nectaring host plants...they were beautiful...

No one can do it for you, choose to use your wings.

       Just when the caterpillar thought its life was over, it became a butterfly

            “It’s the ends of the world,” said the caterpillar. “It’s the beginning of the world,” said the butterfly.

We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty..

A child is……..
A butterfly in the wind,
Some can fly higher than others;
but each one flies the best it can.
Why compare one against the other?
Each one is different!
Each one is special!
Each one is beautiful!

Notice the HEART here?:) 

Happiness is a butterfly, which when pursued, is always just beyond your
grasp, but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you.
~Nathaniel Hawthorne
There are beautiful nurseries adjoining to this place where  you can buy plants,its worth a visit:) some images from the nurseries we visited.

These colorful cacti were just so cute and beautiful!! :)

Often in life what appears to be an ending is really a glorious new beginning....:)
