Oh the struggle against great odds, to meet enemies undaunted!
-Walt Whitman, A Song of Joys
Nothing will stop spring from coming. At Cherry Springs Jamie noticed this snail shell being pushed up by some small growth. That same day while looking in my yard I saw this Lilies of the Valley leaf pushing through a dead leaf. So fun!
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.
