It was overcast this morning but by lunch time the sun broke through the clouds, making a glorious day again in Co Mayo. In my walk around my garden today I spied quite a number of…
Cabbage White Butterfly Caterpillars
And this beautiful Peacock Butterfly
Which brought to mind a quote from a book, my children loved when they were young: The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupery.
“Well, I must endure the presence of a few caterpillars if I wish to become acquainted with the butterflies.”
And also from the same book which I believe we should all keep in mind.
“All grown-ups were once children… but only a few remember it.
