Take a Word - Butterflies

The word this week is "Butterflies".   My flowers and butterflies are courtesy of Dover images.  The image is from a painting by John George Brown (and thanks to June for introducing me to this artist).   Thank you for stopping by!

  5. And thanks to you and June for the link to the artist. What a gorgeous image and you have done it proud. I love the rich colours and the grunginess of the background against the container of flowers. Wonderful artwork.
