Friday Fact – Summer Sunshine!

Yes, it’s a fact –

When the sun shines, butterflies fly

when butterflies fly, little boys want to see

when little boys want to see… they get bold

bold little boys want to catch butterflies


then… the butterflies fly away

so, that means the sun must be shining

if the sun and the butterflies are out

then… it must be summer


when summer arrives the adults want to play

when they play the kids want to join

so, we can all watch the butterflies

and enjoy the few moments of summer


as we enjoy the few moments of summer

we must be grateful and happy

also, we need to teach the children

to enjoy without touching … to let the butterflies fly!


Look oupa... a speckled red!! Summer sunshine fun!!

And so the nostalgia set upon me… as we took photos of butterflies what the grand-kids were having fun watching. We were blessed… we counted 3 Peacocks, 2 Red Admirals, 3 Small Tortoiseshells and a Meadow Brown all on the clump of yellow flowers. We’s also spotted 2 Small Whites and a Common Blue en route to the butterfly haven. We teach the kids the names… sometimes they remember… sometimes not so well… as when you hear…

“Nanny nanny… look a peacock tortoiseshell…!”


“OUPA… look, a speckled red!”

Mind you… speckled red can’t be such a bad name for some of the red butterflies…

Happy Friday!!
