Butterfly Beauty (scattering JOY!)

A little Monday butterfly inspiration…

“There is no beautifier of complexion, or form, or behavior, like the wish to scatter joy and not pain around us.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Be at peace and let your soul feed upon the sweetness of heavenly love, without which our hearts are lifeless and our life joyless.” St. Francis de Sales

grace, peace & butterfly beauty

      Thanks, Nora. Yes, I took pics last weekend @ the Norfolk Botanical Garden (actually all pics here @ Roses in the Rubble are mine unless credited otherwise.) Years ago I made cards out of flower pics, but now share them here, LoL!💐☀️🦋☀️💐

        I love a botanical garden — so many interesting plants, trees, water, and critters to see!

        The Norfolk Botanical Garden is the largest in our state- & that’s saying something since Lewis Ginter in Richmond is HUGE. It’s also the only one in America to feature canal boat tours — totally cool! ☀️🌸☀️
