Join Bella in the garden of her Aunt’s home where the bugs are bigger than life and take some time to teach her some very important life lessons. After a particularly rough afternoon, Bella, in a fit of rage, throws the heirloom necklace her Aunt has given her out the window and into the garden. Bella’s Aunt sends her into the garden to search for the necklace. In the garden, Bella chases and terrorizes the creatures of the garden. Worst of all, Bella captures a beautiful butterfly and cages it to keep for later. Eventually, Bella falls asleep and dreams she is visited by the creatures of the garden. Each bestows her with a gift of character—love, joy, peace, gentleness, patience, kindness, temperance, and self-control. When Bella wakes, she finds her necklace has been returned to her. With a change of heart, Bella returns the necklace to her aunt apologizing for her past behavior. They celebrate Bella’s new attitude with a picnic in the garden, and it was said from then on, whenever Bella wore her necklace, butterflies would follow her.
