This butterfly was one of at least two dozen that fed and fed all day on the last lilac in bloom. I know someone knows the type of butterfly……..? Help?
If I was a yarn dyer I’d dye up some yarn in this yellow with a touch of blue, orange and black. Nature: no one does it better. I washed all of my winter woolens and am drying them now for storage. Hats, mittens, fingerless, socks and two shawls were washed. I put some vinegar in the bath because I was told long ago that wools like a tad of vinegar in the bath. I also chucked a pair of socks that developed a hole over the winter. Whee, now I can knit another pair.
I took these butterflies, in all of their group, as a sign from my Mom. I take almost everything as a sign from my Mom now. It feels great to feel her presence all around me. Please tell me this doesn’t fade away…..
