    He walked past a small house with a gabled roof

    where a young woman was working in her garden. She was cutting finely incised red and white flowers and tying them together in opposing pairs, leaving the bundles with a flower at each end. She was beautiful and her long dark hair streamed in the wind. She was softly humming to...

     There is nothing as beautiful, elegant and more perfect than a butterfly ! They emerge only briefly, and experience the freedom of their choices before returning to butterfly heaven. A bit like us!  Created perfectly in our heavenly father's image to briefly...

    The Cutest Insects

    Butterflies are the cutest insects. They flutter their wings, rest upon things and are so delicate and pretty. Today I rescued two from distress. See today I rode the bus. I was sitting at a stop that had a bench and a partial glass enclosure. The first butterfly was trying to...

    I Adore Butterflies :))

    I have adored butterflies since early childhood. I used to catch them in jars so I could study them before letting them go again :) I have a small garden which I have planted mainly with Budleigh especially to attract buttetflies. This year has been such a good year for the...

    I Rescued A Butterfly

    26 years back, I worked for a delicacies company. They imported fresh herbs from France and one day I found a chrysalis, which I took home with me. After a few days, a swallowtail hatched out. It was rainy for some time and I decided to keep it inside until the sun shone again. I...

    My name means butterfly.

    I am considered to be a social butterfly. I love to collect things that have butterflies. One of my favorite online games I got introduced to in my twenties is a match game where you match butterfly cocoons and when you do, butterflies fly free. The game's animation isn't a flat...

    This fluttering beauty caught my eye as I looked out of the window into my courtyard.  The picture doesn't seem to do justice to the actual color of this butterfly - in sight, it's black with bright yellow stripes.  I don't know why this camera didn't capture it's true colors...

    My Power-animal

    I'd always thought butterflies were these strange and graceful creatures, but that was about it. One day, I was in my friend's backyard with a few people, just sitting around, talking. Every few minutes, this butterfly would come circle around me, and then land somewhere on my...

    Fragile Strength

    Butterflies are a wonder to watch. Their fragile wings can be crushed with the slight brush of a hand yet their strength and agility enures their ability to survive the brutal realities of their environment.  They represent a transformation of one part of a life...

    I was always very close to my Nana.

    I look forward to Spring when the butterflies begin their swarm of my butterfly bushes.  I am waiting... waiting... waiting... and still waiting through all this cold this year to see them.  I really need to see the butterflies soon.

    They Are Like Fairies, Make Me Happy . . .

    I love the way they move, I've always felt connected to them. This summer, a little butterfly fell into the pool, and I scooped it out. Everyone thought it was dead, but it stood up, and was standing in the puddle of water, so I held out my finger and it climbed up onto it. It...

    My Daughter's Symbol

    The first time I felt my daughter move with my hand on her mother's stomach, it felt like butterflies fluttering just under my palm. She pushed against my hand, and she was unmistakably there, real and alive, and mine. Our daughter. It was the last time I felt her as well, but I...

    okay I sounds like a freaking 5-year-old girl

    but seriously butterflies are my spirit animal. I think it comes from my Nana liking them so much. she's always tell me that they were fairies in disguise. sometimes I like to think they are. it makes me feel like my Nana's still with me in a way.

    Chrysalis (kinda Deep)

    i love the concept of the chrysalis-- a small, rather unattractive worm goes away and hides for a while, then breaks free of the prison of its own making, a beautiful new creature.  i think that in that way, butterflies are a wonderful metaphor for our own lives.

    One landed on my finger a couple of months ago

    and I literally felt like I was in heaven. It was a Swallowtail butterfly and I was holding honeysuckles and it just sucked them right on my hand! They are the most beautiful insects ever <3
