“I am so pleased the butterfly has found its home! Spent lots of hours on it.
DJ Chilcoat and I originally made it (my hubby actually cut the design out of exterior plywood then DJ and I did the old mosaic. (Unfortunately, that was in 2005-6 when I was in my mosaic “infancy” and I made a lot of mistakes in terms of adhesives/tiles/grout/sealers.) We put it in the Children’s garden at Green Acres.
When the county decided to move the MG’s to the new site, I just couldn’t leave it to be demolished so took it home and kept it stored until I could redo it. Took several months to do the new mosaic but got it finished. I was concerned how well it would withstand the elements since the wood was over 10 years old. Then Harvey hit and it proved it could withstand most anything! ” said Jeanna Godfrey.
The butterfly was recently moved from Jeanna’s home to the flower bed in front of the AgriLife Office. It is absolutely beautiful there. Thank you Linda Frank, Chris McLester and Ray McLester for bringing it back to the gardens.
The landscape committee also recently purchased two water fountains thanks to a generous donation. One of which has been placed in the bed with the mosaic and the other by the old patio in Coastal Oaks Garden. Be sure to stop by and take a look at all our new and beautiful garden attractions.
