Life Is Like A Butterfly

The other day, I went to collect something from my daughter’s school and as I was walking down an extremely steep hill, I had to stop. One of the reasons I started taking photos is because if someone just stops in the road, people will ask if they are alright. If someone stops and starts taking photos, they are ignored. So I stopped and looked around for something to photograph. There was a butterfly, and although I posted one photo last week of it, it wasn’t as close-cropped as these are.

Also Ran To Week 34

I clicked on the wrong way to create the post, and I didn’t get the BEEP–BEEP–BOOP. Looks like they have decided the creation by the two-year-old wasn’t such a good idea after all.

It was difficult choosing a photo for this week, I really loved some of them, the one I chose, though, is one similar to one of these, but I am not saying which one. I did change several times as to which photo I would use.

These are the close runs. The flower mixture, the yellow seems to be the only flower with life left in it.

A Few Randoms – And No Birds

No birds will please some people. These are a few photos that I took over the last few days.

The tug was on the other side of the wall and plowing through the waves.

The butterfly was the first of the season that I have seen. There were two of them flitting around. Sorry it is not in focus, this only landed for a second.

Follow Friday: The Why About This

The Why About This was one of the blogs that opened the door to many more for me. The owner, Penny, creates poetry and inspiration like you would not believe. I have found that when she posts something that is on her mind, it is very easy to bring it to the fore of your own mind. She has a marvellous way of writing that is so easy to read, it’s as if you aren’t actually reading it, you are just storing it. She uses images to accentuate what she writes and these are usually perfectly matched.

The poetry on The Why About This is also in a class of its own. Each time a poem is written, it is about something different, and may not even be in the same style as the previous 1, 3, 5 or 10 poems written.

Also a very good artist, Penny will often share with us works of art that she has produced. Some of which are also used as online images, like the Troubadour that you will see on various blogs around the internet.

There is a book that she has written – The Shy Butterfly – that is an inspirational book for children and adults alike. It is well written by Penny and illustrated by Debbie Edwards, and it tells of a butterfly overcoming its fears with the help of a Monarch Butterfly. It is a very good book, and well worth a read.

There is also a second blog that she has – A Penny For Your Thoughts – that is solely short inspirational messages.

So, if you want a new blog to follow, head over to The Why About This and see what Penny writes.
