Nature Photo: Labyrinth at Edith J. Carrier Arboretum in Virginia

Three days after chasing a Spicebush Swallowtail butterfly through Meadowlark Gardens, I met another at the Edith J. Carrier Arboretum. Even with a tattered wing, it was bravely flittering from rock to rock to beat the labyrinth.

No matter how broken you feel, don't forget that there are so many wonderful things to be grateful for in this world. Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

How To Plant Your Own Post for Flower Friday:
The only rule to play is that you can only add one link per week! The post doesn't even have to mention flowers, but only ones that do will be eligible for being picked as a feature next week. I will be sharing my flower image on other blog hops, namely Wordless Wednesday, and welcome all family-friendly links from fellow bloggers. Crafters can even link up an Etsy listing or other shop product! But if you want to promote a prize, please add it to my Giveaway Chest Linky instead to entice more treasure hunters.

Please follow my blog through any of the social media icons in the upper right sidebar to receive a reminder to return next week. Adding my button or a text link to your own blog and sharing to your followers is also a fairy appreciated way to help my hop grow.

Flower Friday

  2. Amazing butterfly!! Love that. Thanks for linking. Groetjes Hetty

  3. The butterfly blends in nicely with the slate coloured rocks. With the several brown leaves around, perhaps an Admiral or Monarch would blend in as well.
