Alight upon a flower
Blooming beautiful and true,
But the truest beauty flits about
and sips upon the dew.
Being a horticulturist and avid gardener, we love flowers, bees, and all kinds of produce, but one of the most fascinating frequenters of our gardens will ever-be the humble butterfly. That such a thing of beauty survives in a world so wrought with predators is amazing enough, but that they begin life in such an often-reviling form is even more incredible! Just as we cannot say which came first – the chicken or the egg, so too will the debate rage on between which is more beautiful – the flower or the butterfly resting thereon.
