Chasing Butterflies at The Herbfarm

Chasing Butterflies at The Herbfarm

I spent my afternoon chasing butterflies and flowers at The Herbfarm last week. What a delight for the senses! Amazing smells from the herbs and edible plants not to mention the lilac. But the most delightful part was watching a gorgeous swallowtail butterfly dine on the nectar from the beautiful lilac bushes. And the colors did not disappoint! The soft, light purple of the lilac perfectly complimented the pale, dusty yellow of the butterfly’s wings.

Love it? Visit The Herbfarm next time you’re south of Woodinville. It’s between The Hollywood Hill School House and Chateau Ste. Michelle winery. The gardens are open to the public.

I spent a few hours soaking up the delicious sunshine while the flowers and fountains provided an extraordinary palette of colors for my lens.
