Butterfly Lagniappe


In anticipation of Fall's arrival, we have had an abundance of Gulf Fritillary Butterflies literally swarming around our lantana plants.

Yesterday, I noticed a new visitor and grabbed my camera and captured a close up shot of this Swallowtail (you can click on the picture to enlarge it, if you'd like) ...

I hope your day is filled with lagniappe ... like this butterfly.

She and her portable straw are making the most of your lantanas while the air is still warm and the sun shining.

You just have the EYE for these things, and we are all the richer for your sharing.

"Flutterbys" I always called them when my boys were small and they would delight in correcting me!

Love the new header, too. My Mom had a painting very similar to the one you have in the picture. That was a sweet rememberance of how much she loved beautiful things.
