About Me

My photo
I'm a lover of vintage times and simple elegance of another era. I'm waiting a while for my special little farmhouse. While I'm waiting, I'm making good use of my time creating lovlies with my crochet hook n thread or yarn, and baking and cooking from scratch for my family.

work at your pattern it will come out a
rose by and by. Life is like
stitch at a time taken patiently.

Butterfly flutterby

Good Afternoon all!  Out and about today, although I am out of gas. I wanted to work in the garden today and did turn the compost pile over, and was going to pull weeds when I almost plucked this right out out.  I almost couldn't believe my eyes, as I have picked the weeds out of this barrel and never ever saw....

This was attached to this twig, it may have flown there although I wasn't sure it was even alive at this point.  This is a random something growing int the barrel, I was looking to see if Aunt Lucy's bleeding hearts were coming up, and I wanted to clean it up and saw took my breath away.
such a delight, a fragile stained glass beauty. ( sorry about the trash can )

Most certainly alive, and was showing off for the camera. Isn't it beautiful?
 I went in to get my "regular camera" and when I came back she was still there but with full wings out, warmed by the sun, as I approached to snap the picture she took off up in there and will live out her life in nature, only to continue the cycle.
I feel blessed to have been able to see this...WOW.

WOW...what a gorgeous butterfly. I must send your link to my brother to ask him what it is. I can't believe you got the picture, that it didn't fly away. WOW! I managed a little weeding yesterday and today, it's a start, but we must work up to it after the winter for our bodies sakes, lol

Chuck says it's a beautiful tiger swallowtail!

Thank you both for stopping to comment. It is beautiful, only something that comes directly from GOD's coloring pages. I had heard that it was either a Tiger Swallowtail, or and Eastern Swallowtail, maybe it's the same. Either way...Lovely..
