* ~ Day Lilies and Butterflies ~ *


~ ... a flower which perisheth at night,
and buddeth at the sunne rising.
... and therefore is called the Day Lillie,
or Lillie for a Day.
~John Gerard,
1597



"Beautiful and graceful, varied and enchanting,
small but approchable, butterflies
lead you to the sunny side of life,


and everyone deserves a little sunshine.
~Jeffrey Glassberg


~ "The butterfly counts not months but
moments, and has time enough."
~Rabindranath Tagore
