You're beautiful. You're beautiful.
You're beautiful, it's true.
There must be an angel with a smile on her face,
When she thought up that I should be with you.
But it's time to face the truth,
I will never be with you.
When I heard this song from James Blunt for the first time it touched me deeply as it went straight to my heart. At that time I visited a good and deer friend in Berlin. A very warm and beautiful friend who had the ability to listen without having judgements.....these kind of friends are rare. Unfortunately this friend passed away some years ago in November followed by my grandfather some weeks later. Since than my former life in Berlin became a memory. I cherish the beautiful moments and memories I had there and enjoy the little things I have now here.
This week I noticed two purple beautyberries (Callicarpa bodinieri) which were left (they grow in a bunch) and with a young red oak behind it looked so beautiful that James Blunt and my soultreasures crossed my mind. They are beautiful!
In my blog from 2nd September I showed some caterpillar pictures of the Swallowtail which I collected from a carrot field for a friend to let him enjoy the emerging process. As caterpillars are growing very quickly I needed fresh carrot leaf and everytime I found new caterpillars; at the end I counted between 25 and 30 caterpillars. By the end of September all caterpillars were transformed into chrysalises and a part I gave to my friend and the other part stayed outside on a shadow place. Normally they will hibernate as chrysalis until May/June.....normally.....when we will have no summer temperatures for more than a week in October!
When I returned from my trip to Germany, I immediately noticed two emerged butterflies and some coloured chrysalises.
As the weather stayed warm almost all chrysalises got coloured and day after day I collected an emerged butterfly. For the first time I cursed warm weather as all my efforts to help the new Swallowtail generation of 2014 vanished. The only thing what has left are memories and a new sequence of the last emerged butterfly:
Please visit my metamorphosis gallery for more sequences of emerging butterflies.
Jibt dir dit Leben mal een Buff, denn weene keene Träne. Lach Dir'n Ast und setz Dir druff und baumle mit de Beene.
