Butterflies - or are they faeries?

Although the weather does not really seem like summer (today we will have a high of 19°C, if we are lucky), the butterflies are dancing in the air and visiting what blooms there are.




Trying to concentrate on the summer, even if I can't seem to find it outside, I made some summer inspired earrings.

I love the earrings, Renate! My favorites are the blue flowers in the third picture. You have such beautiful butterflies where you live!
They all seem to like that flower whatever it is. Well, try to keep thinking summery thoughts even though it's not too warm. It's going to be 100°F here next week!

Doreen: that flower is a kind of oregano and the butterflies are crazy about it.

you know, flutter-bys have been noticeably absent in my neck of the woods this year. makes me sad. these photos are *gorgeous*, and are like a breath of spritely life. I am so fond of picasso beads, and your earrings are like a fairy spell!

I don't know how you get those butterflies to hold still for a photo, but they certainly are lovely. I personally want to believe they are fairies,dressed up as butterflies.

Faeries! Definitely faeries! So beautiful as are all of those earings. Renate, I tried to send you some warm weather. 20-25C is my perfect comfort zone!
