Papillon in Paris

As I usually gravitate to nature and all things animal, butterfly specimens beautifully mounted and  framed, were in abundance at the Paris flea and antique markets.  This white beauty was at least 6 inches across.

A Day In A Life

 Today I looked for mushrooms in the woods and planted daylilies, fed the animals, picked asparagus, found two quarter-sized baby turtles brought home by the cats and rescued from the dogs, shopped in town, and made iced sugar cookie eggs for the grandkids who are coming this Easter weekend.  A worthwhile day in the life?  Maybe, maybe not.
