I Love It When This Happens…

Last week, my neighbor called me with some great news:  Lowe’s had some of their flowers and plants marked 75% off!  I stopped by (of course) on the way home from work and found some fantastic bargains such as pots of annuals for $.29 and some beautiful hanging baskets for under $3.00!  That was enough to bring a spot of joy to my week, but it got even better:
I looked out the window the next day and this beautiful butterfly was hanging around my new flower basket.  Thinking it was a great photo opportunity, I got the camera and shot away as he fluttered around.  I was having so much fun, my son had to call from the porch for me to come in because they needed something and “all I was doing was taking pictures of a butterfly”! 
I couldn’t choose out of these photos, so I’m bombarding you with all of them!!

Seeing some beauty and being able to capture it, brought me much joy this week!

Good, True & Beautiful


  1. Those are beautiful photos! My daughter and I spotted a huge, yellow butterfly just yesterday as we were walking and it almost seemed to follow us. She was squealing with delight. Amazing how something so simple can bring such joy :)

  2. Yes, that is some JOY:) but missing the bargains prices is not...for me. I had one of my pots "die" this week - so I ran by the nursery to pick up some replacement plants..thinking for sure they would be on sale this time of year (as apparently they are at Lowe's) - $6.99 for a six pot of impatiens!! Goodness. I'm all for bargains - even with flowers:)

  3. Beautiful pictures!!! I found your blog from At the Well!

    Great post about loving our husbands!

    Thanks for sharing your JOY!

  4. Don't you love cameras?! I love that we're able to capture some of the beauty of His creation so we can continue to enjoy it, even after the moment has passed. Good job taking advantage of the moment!
