I have a known love for butterflies and this year I have really thrown myself into gardening in an effort to create a habitat for my little friends, especially the monarchs.
I hope to write about this soon at apricelessthing.com. In the meantime, I cannot wait to share images of some of my garden visitors. (You may note that some of my winged guests arrived before I even had the plants in the ground…)
Yes, our earth is beautiful. It is holy. But I will share a secret with you. It is also hilariously funny.
The last of the images above is that of a Red Admiral butterfly feasting on a zinnia. Red Admirals are unusually friendly to humans. I also accuse them of being terrible teases… See what I mean?
Here is one playing in my hair, something they were doing repeatedly earlier this summer. And yes, my hair really is that white… 🙂
