Butterfly, Blossom and Grand-Baby B

18 Apr

Today we have seen several butterflies in the sunshine – Brimstone Yellows, one Orange Tipped White, both too flitty to catch on camera, and this Peacock butterfly, lovely on the little purple flowers.

Up the lane there are several Crab Apple trees just dripping with blossom.

Our morning was spent building an enormous wooden swing and climbing frame, a second birthday present from her other Grandparents, for Grand-baby B who was very excited, brought out her own tool kit and helped with the nuts and bolts. The seat became a shelter from the sun and a lovely hiding place. Once it was all assembled, B swung for two and a half hours, laughing and saying, “B swinging!” “B’s playground!” and “Big one!” to go higher and higher. One very happy little girl!

      A lovely memory! There is something hypnotic about the repetitive motion, I love swinging too. 🙂

    The white blossoms, cotton balls, receptor of good medicine which tastes better than paint. ‘Just dripping with blossoms’ you certainly nailed that, as there is no better description -none,none,none. Anything else, at best, a distant second. I grew up with wild crap apple trees all around. So they hold a soft spot in my jelly core.

    Children know what something is really meant to be, don’t they. My first thought, a pint size Mad Hatter with happy go lucky side.

    Beautiful butterfly, blossoms and gorgeous grand baby. And, a girl always needs to know how to handle a few tools in life. 🙂
