The Promise of Spring

Every day in Northwest Tennessee we are seeing gradual signs that Spring is on its way.

“There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature — the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after winter.” ~Rachel Carson

The dance

After viewing a series of photos that I took of this butterfly back in October, I decided to post them in animated motion.  The butterfly looks very graceful as it dances around the flower gathering nectar.

“Do a loony-goony dance ‘cross the kitchen floor.  Put something silly in the world that ain’t been there before.”  ~Shel Silverstein

Autumn butterflies

Even though cooler weather has arrived, several butterflies are still lingering around, tempted by a variety of wildflowers that are currently in bloom.

“Beautiful and graceful, varied and enchanting, small but approachable, butterflies lead you to the sunny side of life, and everyone deserves a little sunshine.”  ~Jeffrey Glassberg
