I think they [butterflies] define the word “beauty.” Just watching them flit around calms a person’s soul!
For the past 2 years, ours have been scarce, so when I see one, I watch it until it disappears from my sight, so I’m afraid a day will come when they don’t exist in my area anymore.
Years ago, I would walk through swarms of butterflies on my way to the mailbox and move slowly to feel them around me. What happened?
Even at the four nature preserves near me there aren’t very many. When I walk in those parks, I always seem to have one follow me. Someone said I must have a deceased relative looking out for me, but I like to believe my angel is with me!
