Beautiful Butterflies

Everyone is like a butterfly, they start out ugly and awkward and then morph into beautiful graceful butterflies that everyone loves. ~ Drew Barrymore

Besides the bees and the beautiful blooms I found during my trip to california, I founds some lovely butterflies.

The Butterfly by Louise Gluck

Look, a butterfly. Did you make a wish?

You don’t wish on butterflies.

You do so. Did you make one?


It doesn’t count.

I say it does count, next time you see a butterfly make a big wish 🙂

P.S. My friend Jillsy Girl has some amazing blooms & butterflies to share over here.

    We don’t have very many this year, either. And nothing like those! It’s interesting how different parts of the country have different species.

    hmmm…I know I was here once before and I thought for sure I left a comment, but who knows, I could have gotten distracted and you probably know how that goes! my apologies. you are obviously getting all the butterflies this year. it’s so odd that we have practically none here this summer.
