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.
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!
