Our Horse Chestnut is starting to bloom. Fun for me! I took this on the first really warm warm day. I started at one bloom and just went around the tree trying not to miss anything. By the time I got to the place I started it had all changed. It was blooming befor my eyes. Amazing. I went around three times.
The last is a photo I took last year. Kind of a peek of what is to come.
Butterflies are known for their unusual life cycle that includes a spectacular metamorphosis from caterpillar to a colorful winged adult. They have an erratic yet graceful flight pattern that attracts attention when they pass. The Ancient Greek word for butterfly is psȳchē, which means soul. I particularly admire their symmetry and kaleidoscope of colors.
