Confused? Every once in a while I’m going to include bits of the behind the scenes of my post if something funny, or interesting or otherwise entertaining happens. It won’t be a full on post, just a little something or other.
Today for instance. I did my vegetable flower arrangement out on my front porch so if I needed anything more to fill it in, I could just walk onto the front lawn and clip a vegetable. A hunk of swiss chard here, a peck of parsley there.
As I came back to my arrangement on the front porch with a handful of beet greens, something followed me. And that something stayed with me for the next 5 minutes or so.
Can you see it? Here … a bit of a closer (albeit) fuzzy look.
A butterfly. A Black Swallowtail. Floating around my vegetable flower arrangement, weaving in and out, hopping over my fingers as I shoved the beet greens in. Of course I didn’t have a camera with me ’cause I was arranging vegetables. So I ran inside, grabbed the nearest camera, which was my iPhone, and came back outside. The butterfly was still happily walking all over the parsley and making its way towards the Anise flower when I got the picture.
And then it flew away.
Wait. Not quite the end … when I brought the flower arrangement inside to photograph (because it was starting to get wilty outside) I got another buggy surprise. An earwig came running at me from a Swiss Chard leaf. BLEH.
Yep. Story of my life. For every butterfly there’s a beast.
