Nature's surprises....

Happy Saturday to you!  I hope your week-end has something special planned.

Earlier this week, The Husband and I went to spend some time with the Country Couple.  We went on a hike with them, and I saw several of nature's "surprises."

Zebra Swallowtail butterfly!

Wild turkeys at work!:-)

We also saw Trillium, but my picture just didn't show them well.:-(  Country Girl has much better photographic ability than I!  She has even been able to sell some of her wildflower photographs in the past!

Thank you for reading.  I really appreciate your comments.


  1. Great photos, Nellie! Have a great weekend:) xo

  2. Wonderful photos Nellie! The butterfly is gorgeous. I have never seen one like it before!
    Have a wonderful weekend!

  3. pretty nice blog, following :)

  4. There is LOTS of beauty in these parts, and the Country Couple has learned how to appreciate it! I especially like the picture of "someone's" toes for a dose of reality! Have a wonderful day, dear Sister! :-)

  5. Nothing like a walk in the woods, is there? Trillium is our state flower and it is illegal to pick it or transplant it here- xo Diana

  6. Nellie, I love the butterfly picture...I have never seen one of those. Beautiful !!! Hope your weekend is wonderful, xoxo,Susie

  7. i have 25 trilliums which i need to plant tomorrow. i love mayapples!

  8. Oh I love that you got a great photo of the butterfly.
    So pretty.
    I need to work on taking better photos too. it seems there's never enough time to learn all i want to learn.
    Have a pleasant weekend.

  9. What a gorgeous photo of the butterfly. The girls and I are anxious to start exploring the woods behind our house again. I think it's "almost" dry enough to enjoy it without coming home covered in winter mud.

  10. I love nature's surprises. Happy birthday to your husband.

  11. Hello Nellie... and thank you so much for your visit... yes, you should fix up your porch for your morning coffee... time to sit and watch Nature and enjoy all of the beauty around you... your Nature walk looks wonderful... love the Zebra Swallowtail... xoxo Julie Marie
