A visitor has come to my garden.......

A visitor has come to my garden.

I saw it for the first time yesterday Usually I see the little white butterflies flitting and flying about but yesterday I had a big surprise. Now where is it? Let me see....

'To a Butterfly'
"I've watched you now a full half-hour,
Self-poised upon that yellow flower
And, little butterfly! Indeed
I know not if you sleep or feed.
How motionless!-not frozen seas
More motionless! and then
What joy awaits you, when the breeze
Hath found you out among the trees,
And calls you forth again!"
-William Wordsworth-

Here it is and it's very pretty indeed!

Charli tried so hard to catch it but it was way to fast for her.

I hope all of you have a wonderful weekend ♥
With warmest regards, Carol

What lovely pictures. Your flowers are so pretty. The poem about the butterfly is very nice. I think Charli looks so cute in her hat. Thank you for your comment on my sidebar pictures. The grandkids and great grandkids really enjoy the pool. I am enjoying it too. Have a blessed evening and a great weekend. Madeline

Hello Carol, My indeed yes the butterfly has chosen well! And I love the pose and adore the pictures..

What does Charli think of your visitor?

Vee said...

Oh I was looking, but surely would've missed it without the close-up. Thank you. Oh, do you know what kind of butterfly it is? (I don't, I was just testing you. Ha!)

Good morning sweet little Charli girl and Carol! I bet Charli loves to watch and maybe even catch butterflies! Lovely and vivid photos dearest, and oh, I hope your neck of the woods is as lovely as mine...I feel for our friends who are battling such ridiculously high temperatures, especially in the North East and in Europe. Enjoy every moment of this lovely season, Anita

Your flowers are gorgeous, Carol! Those are nice photos with the butterfly. I agree, it's always neat to see a colorful butterfly in your garden.

Thank you for your comment on my blog - I'm sewing my blue shorts. Now, they need to be hemmed. :)

The butterfly is a beauty. Good capture with your camera. But I think Charli steals the post on this one. Love her little sun hat. That little diva of a pooch.
