We have been asked why the butterflies on our web site. The reason is worth mentioning. Actually there are two reasons, one I like butterflies but the main reason is that butterflies flock around the wet sand piles used in making cement art. On some days there can be as many as 500 or more butterflies. Butterflies also will land on wet cement. The reason is that they are after the water and can safely land on the wet sand or cement without getting drowned or washed away.
