Tiger Swallowtails and Life

Faithful readers, you may have noticed it’s been a bit, a bite out of time since I last posted. I’ve had much to contemplate, places to travel, lovely connections with Earth, all narrowing down to this moment. Today, milkweed in full bloom and a tiger swallowtail butterfly in incredible perfection burst into my life as I was pulling up to my friend’s home, where I am spending several weeks this summer. It was glorious to my eyes.

The beauty of this lovely creature is a gift.

In witnessing graceful, spontaneous interludes like this, my spirit is glad.

I love what life sends my way, and what I attract into it – perhaps, like this tiger swallowtail, happening upon fragrant milkweed, in full bloom. May we all thrive, and prosper.

    Wow Margaret! Your timing was impeccable and I’m so glad that the milkweed is thriving right out my front door!

    1. Yes! I loved having the swallowtail greet me as I pulled up to your house. Thanks for letting the milkweed grow in your yard ❤
