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…!”

or,

“OUPA… look, a speckled red!”

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

Happy Friday!!
