Reminders of Transformation at the Stratford Butterfly Farm

Link: Stratford Butterfly Farm


In my 27 years on this planet, I’m sure I haven’t seen more than 30 butterflies in “the wild”.

Oh, what a treat it is to see one, though. Their colors and patterns fill me with joy, and their free-spiritedness gives a sense of admiration (and maybe a bit of envy).

That’s why Kyle and I were so enthusiastic about visiting the Stratford Butterfly Farm in Stratford-upon-Avon, UK. Yes, Stratford may boast its Shakespearean history but it should also give its Butterfly Farm a little more credit – it is the UK’s largest of its kind, after all.

We had a lovely time at the Stratford Butterfly Farm and seeing so many butterflies at once was a wonderful reminder that anyone can undergo a beautiful transformation.

But it’s not a guarantee. See…

You have to want to fly so much, that you are willing to give up being a caterpillar.
