Wednesday

Joy For Weary Hours


Yes, in the poor man's garden grow 
Far more than herbs and flowers— 
Kind thoughts, contentment, peace of mind, 
And joy for weary hours.

Butterflies are so hard to capture. I was out today trying my best to get some - none were any good - all blurred. Nice job on yours.

Absolutely stunning!! Your butterfly photos are always amazing!

Is that a Tiger Swallowtail on the thistle? Beautiful combination!

I have to use a new blog and therefore SOON my benches one will have a new address. I hope you will keep the link to both of them on your page tho. (I am running out of photo space allowed.) You can still post to the old blog for a little while until I get the new one set up -- hopefully by next week. Starting the benches blog has been one of my greatest joys and I have a whole bunch more to add when I get more space. Did you see the bench Linda had on her blog JUST for us? There's a link on our blog.

I saw one of these butterflies earlier this week but unfortunately all I had was my little point and shoot and the butterfly wouldn't hold still enough for that camera. I'm always very impressed with your butterfly shots! Great work - awesome shot!

Anita Bower said...
