Butterfly House – GMYBS

On our short drive to my sister’s new house near Hershey, AJ asked if Pennsylvania is where pencils are made. It has been a fun, entertaining, and incredibly hot few days here in PA. Spending hours at a time in a car together and having multiple people sharing a bedroom is a never ending supply for entertaining stories.

On Wednesday, temperature mid-90s with high humidity, we set out for a morning stroll through the Hershey Gardens. Despite the heat, we were able to enjoy ourselves, especially during our walk through the Butterfly House. Botanical gardens are a photographer’s paradise. Since I’m away from my normal computer and my regular editing program, I will leave you with just one of my favorite shots:
