While in Wyoming, my preferred method of transportation is on the back of a horse. But I do a reasonable amount of walking. Today’s walk was broken up by bits of driving as the various parts some at some distance from the cabin. Mind you, on these roads driving speed isn’t always very different from walking, especially when driving a non-four-wheel drive vehicle!

These butterflies were everywhere this summer. I had a bit of fun with editing in this first shot.

Some distance from our cabin is Park Lake reservoir. One summer during a recent drought, the water level was so low that you could ride or walk well into it. Thankfully this year it was filled with water, a haven for fishermen and people who love water sports. Or you just might want to spend some time admiring the view as my daughters and I did.

Sometimes it’s not all about the flower. Happy Friday!

Hmmm. Hold that “Happy Friday” thought until tomorrow or…let’s pretend I’m posting from New Zealand, where it actually IS Friday. I wish WP would go back to having the calendar highlight every day you already have a post scheduled. That’s almost caught me any number of times. At any rate, enjoy the photo whether or not it’s Friday. 🙂

Sorry about the quality of the video. I took it in the evening with the sun behind the shot and through the living room window. But I like it anyway and I hope you do, too.

My friend Isadora at Inside the Mind of Isadora invited me to take part in the 3-day quote challenge.  Thanks very much, Issy!  The “rules” are as follows:

 

Thank the person you chose you.  (Done.)

Post a quote for three consecutive days.  (Won’t be consecutive.)

Say why you like your quotes.  (This quote rings so true to me and reminds me of the quote (more or less) that you should be careful about asking God to give you patience, as He’ll put you in situations where you have to develop it.  🙂  Trust me, that’s true!)

Invite three blogging friends to join in.  (This is supposed to be fun, so any of you reading this who would enjoy taking part, please feel free to do so.  Quotes are so easy to find with the internet.)

The aroma of freshly-made granola perfumes the air in our house this morning, while outside, the flowers I finally planted have been drinking deeply of the rain. I’m ready for a bit of sunshine, but there isn’t much I can do. Tea and a good book are in my plans for the afternoon, at least the part where I’m not working at something.

Today’s Photo Challenge theme is “Evanescent.”  Butterflies are, by nature, evanescent, flitting from flower to flower.  To see one at rest is truly an evanescent moment.
