Butterfly Love ~

Hi everyone! this is my first time participating in Outdoor Wednesday, and of course I'd like to thank hostess *Susan* of http://asoutherndaydreamer.blogspot.com/
I was inspired to take these photos the other day when I went in my back yard to check and see how the bloom on my lilac bush was coming along, and of course to get a whiff of their delightful fragrance, when I spotted two beautiful yellow  butterflies doing a little dance of love... As I watched in awe for several moments it hit me, go grab the camera! So away I ran praying they would still be there when I got back. Well it must have been my lucky day... they were still there when I returned, and I got this photo just in time before they flitted away.


You have to look closely... see them? I only wish I could gotten the photo with their wings fully open, so you could see all their beautiful markings.


While I was waiting, and hoping the butterflies would come back so I could get another shot of them, my cat came to see what all the fuss was about, so of course I couldn't resist getting a shot of her.

Well, be sure to check out the rest of the other Outdoor Wednesday posts over at Susan's, and thanks so much for stopping by!

Lilac’s and butterflies, I don’t think you can get any better then this! Your yard looks intriguing; it reminds me of a secret garden, and a place I would love to spend time in…..~Cathy~

Sherri,
It is always nice to hear from you. Blogging allows us to meet many people, but with you I feel like we are next door neighbors! You would love the Victorian home, it is amazing. Every time I drive up I pinch myself to make sure I am not dreaming. I am lucky to have done many unique homes over the years and always appreciate when an opportunity like this is entrusted to me.

Hi Sherri...

What beautiful photos!!! Oh yes, I do see the butterflies...they're so pretty! My friend, your backyard is gorgeous!!! I love lilacs...it's one of my favorite flowers...I have a couple of bushes in my backyard, however several years ago my honey cut them back and they've never done well since! There's just nothing more beautiful than a vase full of freshly cut lilacs...and Ohhhh, the scent!!!

Thanks for sharing your beautiful butterfly photos with us...and your beautiful lilacs and backyard too!!!

Warmest wishes,
Chari
