Black Swallowtail

A Black Swallowtail emerged this morning.
It was 12 degrees outside.
Too cold for Swallowtails.
She will live indoors with us and the plants.
I love having butterflies in the house.


This morning my husband fixed a fire in the fireplace.
I love watching the flames.
We walked in the late afternoon when the temperatures had warmed.
Today is the birthday of
A.A. Milne.
I am staying warm and active
and so very inspired.

Butterflies in the house. What a lovely idea, although I don't think it would work with our dog. :) I love A.A. Milne.

To coś niesamowitego, tak piękny motyl w domu :-), lepiej niech będzie cieplej, żeby mógł być na dworze, wśród zieleni. Pozdrawiam.*** This is something amazing, so beautiful butterfly in the house :-), better let it be warmer, so he could be outdoors, surrounded by greenery. Yours.

Lucky you to have a butterfly as a house guest. He's beautiful too! Your fire looks so inviting. I guess that cold front arrived.
Keep warm

Dear Sherry,

Swallowtail is just so perfect. I hope she does well.....and enjoys your flowers.

I had a fire roaring in the inglenook last night.....the parents came for supper to celebrate fathers birthday :)

Pooh Bear is a particular favourite of mine....Poppi and Riley love him too!
Piglet has to be the cutest......

Now you have me pondering, what would it be like to have butterflies in the house...
I think they would not have a very long life, with the dogs and cats...
But I can dream!!!

Beautiful butterfly is houseguest. It sound like fun.
I have observed a butterfly's hatch in my house long ago. After hatch, he was flying in our room for some time and left our house.
Your fire is rare for me. It's nice.

he answer is yes Jimmy Choo Handbags. French fashion house has confirmed the Brit model as the face of their Boy Chanel handbag collection Gucci Handbags. [Karl Lagerfeld] a crush with this unique, charismatic dude, who's both one and musician, during the photo shoot several months ago, Chanel told WWD Juicy Couture Handbags. This previously unforeseen alliance finally became self-evident Miu Miu Handbags. Alice Dellal represents the most perfect incarnation off which is unique in regards to the Boy Chanel handbag collection, which strives [to be] not even close conformist notions of femininity.
Yep, Dellal is anything but conventional. And even her trademark punk-rock uniform, the petite 24-year-old is actually a drummer while in the band Thrush Metal and will remain found larking for the streets based in london with Pixie Geldof. Shes far from blonde bombshell Blake Lively, whos the existing face of Chanels Mademoiselle range, but Lagerfeld is acknowledged for his eclectic taste, previously casting Lily Allen for the Cocoon bag range during the past year. Even greater, Alice's androgyny will work brilliantly with the 'Boy' collection Christian Louboutin pumps. How refreshing. Christian Louboutin Sandals
