butterflies in summer
Updated: Jul 24, 2022
So much progress has been made since my last post. I still have not learned how to add taxes and shipping, that will come next. All of my contact forms are working. And, by the way, I have no plans to leave Etsy. You can still find me there. Click here to go there.
I have a summer sale going on right now. The coupon code is SUMMERSALE15, and is specifically for my butterfly collection. This coupon is good until August 8.
I'm excited about the butterfly season (which is now) and the garden my husband planted this year among the usual vegetables. It's a spectacular showing with lots of colorful butterflies I have never seen before.
This is a gulf fritillary butterfly (I think) that I have never seen or heard of before. I can hardly wait to paint her. There's a teeny blue butterfly I have seen often. I continue searching to figure this one out. The female is exactly like the one I painted in the side view.
There were 4 different kinds of butterflies in the garden at the moment I was filming. Most all had broken wings. The birds and the wind can be challenging but they just keep on pollinating and fulfilling their purpose in life. They are so beautiful and inspiring to me.
Each time I think I've finished my butterfly collection, I find another I haven't seen before. I have been posting the vids in my "Stories" on Instagram. I finally listed my latest video as a highlight.
I hope you are having a great summer!
