08/07/10 - Beauty on Orange For the 3rd day this week, I took my lunch break at Porter Farms and Nursery  to get some refreshment at the ice cream stand and take butterfly pictures on their butterfly bushes.  Nextdoor to Porters is Ogburn Landscape Supplies.  Johnny has been fascinated this week watching the front loaders load mulch and rock into pick-up trucks.  Mom has been using the one pile of orange tone sand for picture back-drops.  The butterfly bushes are positioned just right;-)  At any point, I realize I've posted 5 swallowtail shots already in 3 months, but this one seemed so different with the orange tone background and underbelly perspective that I thought I'd share it too.  I'm thinking NC State Fairgrounds this AM for the flea market followed by the JC Raulstron Arboretum (which is a mile away) afterward if it's not too warm.  We haven't done the flea market in a while, and I don't think I've ever taken the boys to that arboretum.  It's tax free weekend in NC which means saving about 7.25% on clothes, school supplies, and computers.  Kohl's was packed last night!  Hoping you are having a great weekend so far and that it continues! Maryann
May 5 1945 Denmark was liberated by the British  from Nazi occupation, later American forces joined in. The picture is from my parental home where my parents gave accommodation to these two soldiers for about a fortnight as few accommodations were available. The soldier on the right is British and the one to the left I think was American.  I am the boy in between. My memory of these days are vague, but I remember that one of them had a jeep parked in front of the house and I had great pleasure of learning to drive by repeatedly use of the self-starter and thus moving  the jeep half a block away. As my father caught me in the act I was at once send to bed. The picture was taken by my father with his prewar Contax
