In memory

Compton Tortoiseshell butterfly (detail, watercolor)
You won't see many of these butterflies in our state; perhaps in the Panhandle area of northern Florida.  I selected this butterfly painting to post because it's something that my Auntie Lo would have loved to spot on one of her past walks.  She passed this last week, and I felt the need to commemorate her life in some way.

She loved nature, and was always a positive and loving presence in my life.  I was fortunate to have a  visit with her last October, and to hug her one last time.  Thank you, Auntie Lo.
