Butterfly Drama in the Garden

Oh what a day! Have you ever tried to nurse a butterfly, repair a tiny wing?
My cat named Bliss jumped on this little guy and cracked her wing and I spent the better part of today trying to apply tiny bits of coffee filter dipped in white glue to the injury. She seems alright but she won't try to fly yet so I have no idea if it will work or needs more re-enforcing. Of course the problem is to keep it as light as possible so her balance is not thrown off. I think now I have to put her in God's hands and say a few prayers.   

 Poor thing looks like a badly made quilt!
I guess though all we can do is try our best, one thing for sure is without help she was not going to fly again in any event so I am hopeful that she will give it a try soon!                                                


  1. oh sweet Tina, you have a great heart trying to heal that butterfly... hope she can fly again!!!
    I´m taking care of 11 new born puppies...she doesn´t have enough milk for all of them so I´m feeding the smallest ones.
    Many hugs
