Don’t Squish the Butterflies

There are very few bugs that don’t deserve squashing. Flies deserve a swift, crunchy end to their lives, as do beetles. And no one likes a slug. But everyone loves butterflies. What’s not to love? The ugly ducklings of bugs transform from slinky caterpillars to gorgeous, friendly butterflies, which provide color to any backyard. If you want to spend some time with these winged wonders, the Texas Discovery Gardens (3601 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd) host Butterfly House Discovery tours at 11 a.m. on the first Saturdays of the month. Admission is $8 for adults, $4 for children. More information at
First Saturday of every month, 11 a.m. Starts: July 5. Continues through Jan. 3, 2014
