I think they [butterflies] define the word “beauty”. Just watching them flit around calms a person’s soul!
For the past 2 years ours are really scarce so when I do see one I watch it until it disappears from my sight, so afraid a day will come when they don’t exist in my area anymore.
Years ago I would walk through swarms of them on my way to the mailbox and just move slowly so I could 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 though. Someone said I must have a deceased relative looking out for me but I like to believe my angel is with me!
