Spreading a little butterfly happiness around today…
“Happiness is a butterfly, which, when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp; but which, if you sit down quietly, may alight upon you.” Nathaniel Hawthorne
…that comes in different flavors.
Best not get too comfortable (especially if a bee is OTW!)
grace, peace & motivated butterflies
Virginia : )
I’ve loved your first quote for many years, Virginia. Thanks for reminding me of its truth … and for these gorgeous butterflies!
It’s often hard capturing butterflies on camera, but fun following them around! That quote seemed appropriate for these times, Debbie. It’s easy to get caught up in fear frenzies, when if we chill out joy may alight on us… Butterfly blessings! 🦋🤗🦋
I loved the quote, and the pictures are wonderful. I am planning out a butterfly garden for this summer. I’m hoping to lure in some monarchs.
We have visited several butterfly gardens, but how cool to make one yourself! Sounds like an inspiring endeavor (butterflies tend to inspire me with their beauty & quick zipping around.) Butterfly blessings!🌷☀️🦋☀️🌷
This is indeed a nice post that features butterflies. I hardly see butterflies anymore as we urbanise more and more each time. So to be able to see them is a treat. Thanks for showing these and it means you are out and about! Which is great to be back for your walks as I get to see the lovely nature sights through your lenses.
Hey GH, I’m also a butterfly groupie. It’s been fun seeing them in gardens while traveling (took 3 of these pics @ Tennessee Aquarium.) We see them around our yard, but many more congregate in downtown gardens. Things here in Virginia (the state) are slowly opening back up – Phase 1 started Friday, but many places are still closed with folks still encouraged to work from home. Hope things in Singapore will proceed safely – please take good care of yourself!! (& your parents!) 😷🦋🤗🦋😷
June 2 will be our phase 1. You take care too and when you can go out, we will get to see more lovely photos of nature.
Phase 1 started here 2 weeks ago for most of our state (3 areas with continued outbreaks are still under lockdown.) It’s been grand to see restaurants opening back up with outdoor tables socially distanced filling up.. Blessings as things open up in Singapore- be safe!! 🌸☀️😷☀️🌸
We are cautiously opening and if community transmission rises again, in one fell swoop we will be back in Circuit Breaker.
Hope your reopening is proceeding safely! Yesterday we entered Phase 2 here, so more places are (carefully) reopening. 🌹😷🌹
I love your flutterbies and their wise words! Thanks! 🦋
Thanks, Jane. It’s hard to capture “flutterbies” on camera, but fun following them around! Butterfly blessings! 🦋🤗🦋
Lovely post and photography!
Thanks, Steph. It can be hard at times catching a butterfly on camera, but sometimes patience is rewarded! Butterfly blessings! 🦋🤗🦋
Thanks for sharing the butterfly happiness….very beautiful and colourful creatures!
To anyone reading this: let joy in and choose happiness. You deserve it.
Have a blessed day Virginia. Love & light. 💕✨
Thanks Sunshine – here’s to choosing joy and letting a little butterfly happiness in our hearts! It’s not easy catching butterflies on camera, but patience is rewarded (if we sit quietly & let them fully engage fluttering grooves around us.) Much love & butterfly blessings, Cyn! ☀️🦋🤗🦋☀️
Love the Hawthorne quote!
Thanks, Tim – the quote turned up in a daily reading, so I went searching for butterfly pics to go with. We’ve enjoyed visiting many butterfly gardens in our travels & seeing them here around town, too. Butterfly blessings! ☀️🦋🤗🦋☀️
Good for you! Stay safe🥰
You, too, GH – stay safe!! 🦋😷🦋
