Oh I am April's Fool!





In the movie Shakespeare In Love - the young Shakespeare utters the line. "Oh, I am Fortune's fool!" I can't remember the exact context. I think it's when he's playing Romeo and has just killed Juliet's cousin, Tybalt. Incidentally - I love this movie.

The last few days have made up for all the cold, gray darkness of winter waiting. I am April's fool. These pictures were taken by a giddily stumbling, babblingly happy me. April's Fool - C'est moi.

Hey, you have the same kind of butterfly that Ruth at Body, Soul & Spirit had.
I love the photos--glad you are enjoying "drinking" in spring. No wonder you are giddy. Great feeling, isn't it.

I had never noticed a Mourning Cloak butterfly before this week. Your picture is excellent. I am enjoying your blog and pictures now that I have added you to my Google Reader.

Kgmom - how nice that a butterfly has introduced me to Body Soul Spirit. Thanks for the connection. And, yes - Spring feels very, very good.

Body Soul Spirit - I'm so glad you dropped by - I'll be over to see your mourning cloak. I wondered if anyone would know what it is. One actually landed on my son's shirt late in March - years and years ago. A magical moment.

Cathy, I was giddy about you being giddy! Your photos capture Spring so well and something I know you have been waiting so patiently for... I just can't wait to see what you see next...

Love that butterfly, too.

What lovely photos, Cathy. I am glad that spring has sprung for you there. No doubt it is a tonic to you, even more so than usual after all you've been through lately.

Spring hugs to you, my dear.

I can see all the naturalists here examining that butterfly's spots. Ah, what delights await!
