Butterflies on a Butterfly Bush

Hi! Mr. Nature here, on a cold, rainy, miserable day in New Jersey, our second in a row–and tomorrow isn’t predicted to be any nicer.

If your weather is behaving as badly as mine, I thought you might enjoy this little video of butterflies enjoying a butterfly bush in someone’s garden. Several different kinds of swallowtails show up.

My grandpa always had a butterfly bush in his garden. How I miss it!

Thankfully, there’s always youtube. So let’s flutter back, in our imaginations, to the early summer…

The Tiger Swallowtail Butterfly (Video)

I had to share this video with you all. I hope it works.

One thing I will always miss about the summer, as this summer passes on to fall, is the tiger swallowtail. These big, fragile, gorgeous, graceful butterflies are among my favorite works of the Lord. God does have a jeweler’s touch.

The wonderful thing about it is that they’ll be back again next summer, and I can love them all over again. The Lord doesn’t charge us for them.

I’m pretty sure He loves to see them, too.
