Wings flicker like blue flames as the Pipevine Swallowtail entices mimosa to sweeten its nectar. The rapid flutter is like a knock on the door for the plant to increase sugar flow to the flowers and it also works the pumps inside the butterflies to help them sip. But for the observant humans its a beautiful dance. An expression of joy brought to life by the simplicity of abundance. I’d not seen too many butterflies this year until I happened upon the mimosa tree in bloom. And though this one is nearly done with its season it still hosts a kaleidoscope of brightly colored wings all fluttering in the sun. Most are Pipevine Swallowtails and there’s a few Tiger Swallowtails with little skippers and painted ladies mixed in for good measure. They’ve all come to nature’s banquet on the edge of Peter’s Creek. Soon the tufts of silky pink flowers will fade away but nature is already bringing the Ironweed and Joe-Pye-Weed to bear. The fluttering will shift and nothing is to be wasted in the marching of time. God in his artistry moves the stroke of his brush to one side and then the other. With each stroke a new world is born before our eyes. Worlds full of colorful wonderment to be enjoyed to their fullest. This is life in Appalachia tonight. Don’t miss a single moment.
Good night friends and be blessed throughout your days.
For those who have been following me on Facebook and know of the struggle content providers have to get circulation from big tech I’ve been recommending for people to adopt MeWe as a social media platform. One of the problems I’ve run into on MeWe is that people don’t know how to navigate the platform. So to help with that I’ve created a permanent page on my website as a basic Basic Beginner’s Guide To MeWe I’ve tried to anticipate all basic questions there and You can bookmark the page to have as a reference and if you have any questions or suggestions don’t hesitate to contact me. I do still have a day job and I help admin several pages on both platforms so replies might be a little slow but I will answer you.
We also have the Lloyd’s Lens Photography Discussion Group on MeWe that is set up as a fully functional community. There you’ll not only be able to see and connect with me but you can also make your own posts and interact with each other.
