Amaryllis and Butterfly

The second stem of the amaryllis with its heavy bud was leaning perilously so I fabricated this fence contraption with willow from the garden as a preventive measure. There is a third stem growing also.

There was a butterfly fluttering around the kitchen today. I caught it between two strainers and put it outside. It flew to a sheltered spot under the jasmin nudiflorum which is blooming and settled on a lunaria (honesty) leaf. Maybe it had a drink of water. Maybe a bird will have it for dinner.

Yesterday and all night we had pouring rain with blustery wind. Today the showers are interspersed with sunny spells. What do butterflies do when it rains ? I have no idea. Maybe I will go see if any Yahoos know.

About djdfr

Daily life experiences by a Franco-American woman living in the Breton countryside form the basics of this blog. Gardening, watercolour, choral music, food, are some of my interests. I seek to balance the physical, mental and spiritual. I am a free believer praying from the Bible, the Qur’an and The Revelation of Arès. In 1974, with Jesus as the messenger, and in 1977, manifesting as a stick of light, Our Creator spoke directly to a man in Arès, France, named Michel Potay. The message is in the book “The Revelation of Arès”. It is a call for us to change, to practice love, peacemaking, forgiveness, to free ourselves from all prejudice, to develop our spiritual intelligence, the intelligence of the heart.
