A Boy, a Butterfly and a Birthday
Postcard From My Walk to Desiree arrived in California - hooray! Done on the visit to Shepstone Gardens of a couple of posts ago, it was stretching the concept of 'from my walk', as it was more of a gentle amble from spot to picturesque spot.
The butterfly, however, is one I see quite often while walking, and this one was sitting very peacefully on an arum lily in my garden after a walk, to be photographed and later painted. My sister-in-law in Cape Town, known in her area as The Butterfly Lady, tells me it is a Citrus Swallowtail, also known as a Christmas butterfly.
A Sketch in Time is now five years old, and once again I ask myself, "Quo Vadis?", but it will probably carry on bumbling along in its rather aimless manner, as I do. Thank you to all who visit here for bumbling along after us!
