My Beautiful Mum....


This was taken in the 60's and how lovely did this lady look?
(no make up....wow)

My mum's going into high care tomorrow, and that's a lovely thing...
but I'm thinking about what's gone before and who she was on the way to being who she is today.

It's a big jumble of then and now...
and really that's ok...
you have to accept now and remember then...
as usual it's
"tension in the negative spaces"...
Love You Mum.

Clouds...



While flying up to Brisbane on the weekend I took these pix just with the phone...
It was so beautiful looking out the window.

My Monarch Butterfly....


On Saturday Marj and I visited the "butterfly lady"
and I came away with an early birthday gift.
A Monarch Butterfly Chrysalis...
Such an exciting journey...
the first flutter...this is when she was freshly hatched...
you can see the remains of the chrysalis on the right.

This is what the caterpillars look like..
.just beginning to attach, before becoming a chrysalis.

The type of flowers favoured by the Monarch.



The plant that hosts the caterpillars and chrysalis.

More butterfly friendly plants...

This is Amelie (as she has come to be known)..
just before she hatched, you can see the markings of her wings
 so clearly through the wall of the chrysalis.

Just freshly hatched...
Drying her wings on some favoured flowers...

Having a stretch.


She gave me such a fright when having her first flutters she landed on my hand...bit of a shaky photo, me trying to concentrate and capture the moment.
