The Butterfly Dance from Adele Mogavero

This piece of music was composed for my Grand-daughter. When she was born, there was much rejoicing in our home!! Just picture a little girl twirling and skipping through a field of daisies. Sweet and precious. Much like a butterfly, poetry in motion. The Butterfly ....

Yellow Butterfly Hijinks: Colour & Inspiration Tuesday from Clever Chameleon

Yellow Butterfly Hijinks colour board at Clever Chameleon

The little blue flower that started a neighbourhood dispute…..

Or was it the yellow butterfly? Or someone else entirely…..?

Watching the local pollinators compete, you would be forgiven for thinking that flowers are scarce in Arkaroola right now. Which, I think you probably get the idea: they are not.

Butterfly Wings and Trilliums from Telling Stories Through the Needle's Eye

Yesterday, on our social media pages (Instagram and Facebook), I (Teri) posted this flower center with the caption "Guess the flower!"
