Happy Easter


The air is vivid with the promise of Spring.


What better way to chase away the last of winter
than with this Rice Paper (Idea leucone) butterfly.

Our city, Montreal, celebrates spring with a wonderful exhibition of butterflies from around the world, flying free in the Botanical greenhouse.

  2. No spring feel here yet. Easter will be much colder than Christmas, unbelievable but a fact. But I want to wish you a happy Easter nevertheless. Thank you for this gorgeous butterfly! Must be wonderful to celebrate spring with butterflies. I love butterflies. I hope there will be more in the garden this year than last year. Another thing to look forward to.
    Bye,
    Marian
