Monday Musings

The whimsical character seen in the first image may be familiar to those who have followed my cyber-venues. She has been visiting my succulent garden (as well as my armoire) clad in her butterfly Halloween costume for a few years during the season for this holiday. If you'd like to read what I said about her in bygone times, when I wrote for Hometalk, please click here

A real butterfly seen in the next five pictures is one that I happened to see when I was in Central Park yesterday. The lovey insect was alighting on flowers near the 72nd Stret entrance to Central Park. It was a lovely site to behold, especially since I have not seen a butterfly in my rooftop garden for quite sometime!

But I still recall how thrilled I was when I saw a butterfly alight on my Physocarpus opulifolius (Coppertina Tree) that was growing at my urban garden!

On that particular day, I recalled Richard Bach (Jonanthon Livingston Seagull) observation: "What the caterpillar calls the end of the world, the master calls the butterfly."

And at the time I was so moved by seeing this phenomenon that I made a mini movie about it which can be viewed on Vimeo. I also took a number of photos of the incident and Cam agreed to let me feature one of them in her book, Words In Our Beak Volume One.

Recently, I rendered the book's butterfly image into a postcard which can be seen below. 

Meanwhile, I plan to see my whimsical character in the very near future as Halloween will be here at the end of next month which begins this coming Saturday! In the interim, I hope to see more real butterflies in my garden as well as in NYC's great parks!
