Tiny snail

Last week when it was drizzling outside I looked up from my book to see a brave tiny snail in with a bright orange-brown shell, making its way across one way of the fench to the other. Surely but slowly in the drizzle. I  had to go outside to take some pictures of it of course.

Butterflies (Emmen)

To a butterfly (2)

I'VE watched you now a full half-hour,
Self-poised upon that yellow flower;
And, little Butterfly! indeed
I know not if you sleep or feed.
How motionless!---not frozen seas
More motionless! and then
What joy awaits you, when the breeze
Hath found you out among the trees,
And calls you forth again !

This plot of orchard-ground is ours;
My trees they are, my Sister's flowers;
Here rest your wing when they are weary;
Here lodge as in a sanctuary!
Come often to us, fear no wrong;
Sit near us on the bough!
We'll talk of sunshine and of song,
And summer days, when we were young;
Sweet childish days, that were as long
As twenty days are now.

Thursday Challenge; Best (week 2)

Today's Thursday Challenge is week 2 of; "BEST (week 2 of 2)" (High Quality, Fastest, Largest, Tastiest, Trophy,...)

Last Tuesday I finally had a meeting with one of my first online friends Melody in her favourite place; Wildlands Adventure Zoo Emmen. Not only was it great to finally meet her in person but the place where we met was gorgeous! I adore animals and here the animals have so much space!
Where the butterflies were flying all around you; I think that might be my favourite spot of the whole Zoo...
