Butterflies

It’s that wonderful time of year when masses of butterflies come floating through our gardens here in South Texas. The butterfly is a symbol of Jesus’ resurrection. Many people believe they are our loved ones coming to visit us from Heaven. I like that!

I love the intricate patterns God created on their delicate wings. You can click on the picture to see it larger.

Karen and Stu Cooper, friends of ours from Floresville, sent these two pictures taken in their amazing gardens. Karen said they’ve never had this many butterflies before.

Isn’t this Swallowtail gorgeous? Being able to sit in the quiet of the garden with the music of rustling leaves in the background, watching these beautiful creatures dance from flower to flower is a gift. I know many of you are already experiencing winter cold and even snow. So please enjoy our butterflies and let them warm your heart! BIG HUGS,

    Just came back to Mass. from a month in FL. No butterflies here and the week is expected to be in the 40’s. However, I filled my kitchen window birdfeeder with sunflower seeds and hope to enjoy some birds besides the Thanksgiving turkey.
