Flowers, Butterfly and R/C

       *Flowers, Butterfly from my friend's yard*
These pictures were taken late last month at my friend's yard. A swallowtail butterfly was flying over the flowers of Tulip and Valerian. This was the only butterfly I could take a picture this spring. Sort of belated posting, but happy with this chance :-)

Valerian, Dogwood and Borage. Borage is my first flower to know♪


      *First Chance to see the 'Radio Control Airplane' flying*
On our way to the Ejio Park (previous post) to see the roses, "to my  husband's joy" he spotted 'Radio Control Airplane' was flying. We drove up the little hillside to see it. 
So surprised that the elderly couple was my husband's acquaintances. Even the man came toward us calling our family name p:-)   He kindly restarted flying his yellow plane for us.    Sure was heartwarming seeing the couple enjoying the same hobby♡♡♡


After landing and I could see how precious the plane is for him♪

Lovely post with a variety of beauty and interest.

Hello Miyako, I love the beautiful butterfly and the lovely flowers. They are all gorgeous images. The radio controlled planes are neat, men do love their toys, lol. Happy Friday and have a great weekend!

Hi, Miyako! I so love butterflies, and I have several around my house in various forms. We plant flowers specific to butterflies to draw them. How fun to have a model plane. I have a nephew who builds these and flies them. Have a wonderful weekend. Hugs from Texas

Hello Miyako, It's been a long time, but your photos are as breathtaking as ever. Just gorgeous! I'm a little bit jealous! (Ok, I'm a lot jealous! lol) The radio controlled planes look to be lots of fun as well. Glad to see that you are still blogging. I'm starting back up again, and am trying to visit all my dear bloggy friends!

It is nice to see a couple enjoying the same thing! We had a friend who flew those radio-controlled planes, but his wife was not impressed at all. I think they are fun to watch. But would rather find birds and flowers.

And your flowers are just beautiful. I'm not good with names of them either.

I forgot to say I love the butterfly. I have gone 'hunting' for them several mornings but cannot get any good pictures. You certainly did!!

Hello Miyako, I am just stopping back to say thank you for linking up your pretty butterflies and post. Have a happy weekend!

Adam Jones said...

Fantastic butterflies.

Latane Barton said...

My gentleman friend used to fly remote planes. I have never gotten to see them but we enjoy watching them on Youtube. Looks like a lot of fun.

Hannah said...

What gorgeous shots of the beautiful swallowtail, dearest Miyako! It seems more like lace than the Tiger Swallowtails that visit my garden, with all the white and black scallops on its wings. My Valerian is just starting to bloom, but it is the white kind that is medicinal so not as pretty as the pink ones. How fun to run into the couple that you knew flying the airplane! Hugs from the PNW!

Marie C said...

Wonderful butterfly photos and I love your gorgeous flowers too! Yes, how neat the couple are having a lovely outing together, enjoying flying the plane. Neat that you happened upon someone you knew! :-) Have a wonderful weekend!

Gunilla Bäck said...

Hello dear Miyako, I love all the flowers and the butterfly is gorgeous! Many BIG hugs from Finland.

Beautiful shots of the butterfly and the lovely flowers. My husband once worked for a company that builds all the components of those planes. He built the electronics.

Donna said...

What a delight to see all your beautiful flowers and that beautiful butterfly.

Judith @ Lavender Cottage said...

I know we would all enjoy butterflies at any time of year Miyako, great capture of the swallowtail.
An interesting hobby for the older couple with the plane, but as you say at least they are both interested in it.
Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday.

Laura said...

The butterfly and blossoms are so beautiful Miyako!

Linda H said...

Lovely flower and butterflies! I am planting Borage for the first time in my garden this year!

Grantham Lynn said...

Oh the butterfly was so pretty. Thanks for sharing. Looks like you've had some fun times. I love your mosaics.

Christa atCedarmereFarm said...

It's very interesting that your swallowtail butterfly has the exact same shape as ours in Virginia, but the pattern is very different. I love borage. It's such a sweet plant.

Lorrie said...

Beautiful butterfly and flower photos. Butterflies are wonderful, delicate creatures.
Model airplanes is a hobby that my husband enjoyed for quite a few years. It was fun to go out with him to fly it. Glad to see your husband's friends having fun together.

Rambling Woods said...

Hello Miyako from a sunny New York state. What a wonderful catch. We have swallowtail butterflies here, but all are difficult to photograph. These are lovely photos to go with your flowers. How nice for the couple to have a hobby together. It looks like fun to fly that plane...Michelle
