Butterfly And My Blog Anniversary!

 

Four years ago today, I published my first blog post!  I have now written a total of 720 posts.  When I started my blog, I really had no idea how much I would enjoy it and how much I would enjoy reading and commenting on other blogs.  (After reading so many talented writers, I should feel ashamed and stop writing my blog, but I have no shame and keep blogging along!)  Thanks to  Meike  in Germany who...CONVINCED me to have my own blog!

Recently, Richard and I had walked on the trails at Panola Mountain.  There was the most beautiful butterfly on one of the benches beside the trail and Richard was able to quickly take a photo before it quickly flew away. (And I LOVE Richard's photos, don't you?) Can you see the orange on the tops of the wings? There is also orange on the underside of the wing as well.

 It is a red spotted purple...and it is gorgeous!

image from Wikipedia...Richard couldn't get another shot of it, it was too quick!

We saw more wildlife on that that walk and I will tell you about that in another post.  TRY to make it until then, okay? I know the suspense is killing you!
Thanks to all who read my blog.  I appreciate you!

Also, happy birthday to my sister...she shares a birthday with my blog!

  11. Happy Blogiversary Kay! And no need for shame - your blog is always a fun and cheerful place to visit. Keep it up! :D

    Lovely, lovely butterfly. Aren't they little miracles of colour and design? It's like God poured out all His creativity and whimsy when he made them. (The God of Colour. A fascinating thought.)

    1. Hello beautiful bride Beate!
      Thank you! You are so sweet to say that about my little blog!
      And I had a MOST exciting weekend! On Saturday, I did a lot of housework and since our washing machine is trying to tear up...I had to BABYSIT the dang thing, and make sure the water worked properly!
      Oh well, at least I saw a new butterfly on Sunday, I will tell you about it later!
      Hugs to you, my friend!

    1. Hey there, Georgie Girl! (You knew I would say that, didn't you?)
      Read my comment above to beatufiul Beate, I am ashamed that I have nothing more exciting to report than me standing by my washing machine monitoring the hot/cold water temps! HA!
