Butterflies, buds, and growing thoughts.

Despite spring having "arrived" since the 21st, I still don't ever feel like it really is until this day rolls around. All the children in adorable outfits, moms laughing, dads shaking their heads as the children run to gather up all the eggs. Its one of my favorite days of the year, because it feels like spring. I look forward to it each year, the warmth of the days have gotten to that slightly obnoxious wear a coat in the morning and shorts in the afternoon stage, and the world seems to have brightened up. Plants begin to bloom, and I see the buds everywhere, and especially look forward to my favorite creation in the insect realm, butterflies, returning and gracing us with their presence. This butterfly that Margaret Slaugh captures makes me smile every time I see it, so I wanted to share such a happy scene with you. Enjoy this day and we'll see you tomorrow here at Home on the Rangely.
