One of the butterflies we released, taking a rest on our pear tree before flying away.

p.s. This is my last butterfly post; I promise!


  1. gorgeous! makes my heart ache for spring. the butterfly looks happy about ti too :) Faythe @ GMTthanks for stopping & linking up.

  2. Kind of jealous! Here in North Dakota, real spring does not really appear until late May or early June. We get warmer days beginning the end of march but nothing blooms until May. On the upside, I do better with cold than heat! However, this has been a really long and rough winter.

  3. Sorry to hear, Pam! I hope the sunshine comes your way soon!

  4. Genny, I love this picture! I love the new life evident in the buds on the tree. The butterfly also speaks of changes and new birth. New seasons. I am in one myself. It was so nice to 'hear' from you yesterday. What a lovely surprise to find your comment on my blog. I am sending you an email. Thank you for "looking" for me. :)Those quotes held special meaning for me also. It was/is a blessing to visit here.Hugs,Joy

  6. "I may not be there yet, but I'm closer than I was yesterday."This is wonderful encouragement and a great reminder. Thank you!

  7. Oh! You are a bit ahead of us. We don't have buds on the trees yet, but we do have daffodils and crocuses starting to come up in our flower beds!

  8. Our trees are just starting to bud- today is really the first day you can see little flowers opening and it does make one feel so much more hopeful!

  9. Beautiful photo! The quotes were a beautiful match to the photo, too.
