"Happiness is only real when it's shared" ~Christopher McCandles~ Into the Wild
This alluring butterfly was flying around my flowerbed the other day. As I sat there and took dozens of pictures, I kept thinking that my photo would not capture the lightness of that beauty I was seeing first hand. The past few weeks I had witnessed bushes full of different butterflies on our river trip, then dozens more as I hiked thru Shenandoah Mountains a week later. But it was in my own yard that one stopped me in my tracks and reminded me of why I love butterfly gardens. The peace and tranquility seems to grab hold of me each and every time I take the moment to just watch them.
