Graceful, varied and enchanting
“Beautiful and graceful, varied and enchanting, small but approachable, butterflies lead you to the sunny side of life. And everyone deserves a little sunshine.”
— Jeffrey Glassberg
Flowers are not only attractive and fragrant; they also draw butterflies to add even more beauty to our lives. When I was a child I was tempted to catch them, but soon learned from experience that this was not a good thing to do. Now I try to catch them with my camera lens, a trick that is sometimes quite a challenge, but leaves the butterflies unharmed.
Something about the fluttery movement of butterfly wings fits perfectly with the appeal of a garden in bloom. It’s as if the sight of their nearly weightless agility lightens our moods, lifting our spirits with a sense of freedom and fun. Next time you see a butterfly dancing about, take a minute or two to enjoy its air show. I wish you sunshine today!
