Dead.

































But still beautiful.

Poor thing. It is so hard to think about how short a life butterflies have. When we grew them from caterpillars a few years ago it was so upsetting to think they had about a week after they hatched. And one came out with only one wing working so had to be mercifully killed. So many sadnesses.

Very fancy! We should dress so well!
My husbands diet is so boring now- I sneak off to grab a pastry now and then (too often) and eat it in the park so I don't make him feel bad. My porky round short body really loves this affair I am having in the park...
We have another TWO leaks in the yard- water is off and big diggers are trying to find the broken pipes AGAIN! So much water here!
So, I just grab my needle and felt- takes me out of here in my mind, that is mostly gone anyway - not a stretch...

Yes, sad to see such beauty stilled. But,then, it gives an opportunity to examine the wonder---the camouflage of the dead leaf on one side and the brilliant flower colors on the other.
