Now to what I saw in the Mimosa. A huge kaleidoscope! Did you know that kaleidoscope is the word for a group of butterflies? There must have been hundreds, swarming the tree. Each one would land on a blossom for only seconds, then flit away. This left me no time to focus the camera! So I did the best I could. I could not get the entire group because they were up so high in the tree, with the blinding sun.

honey, I drank thenectarand wine. Celebrate with me, friends!
Raise your glasses—“To life! To love!”
There are quite a few Mimosas around here. One is near McDonalds, and it smells wonderful when we eat there. Mimosas are also called Sensitive Trees, because touching the leaves makes them curl up! But this post and the next one are really about whet we found IN the Mimosa. Something I had never seen in my life! You will see in my next post!
“Be gentle with one another,sensitive. Forgive one another as quickly and thoroughly as God in
Christ forgave you.”
This is Dale Chihuly's Persian Ceiling, from an exhibit at the Richmond Art Museum. The ceiling is just a small part of the beauty this man creates! The glass pieces are resting on a flat glass pane that is lit from above. There are over a thousand pieces of glass! So come, let's start the tour. Look up!
Back down on the floor, here is the tour, looking up. I love the colorful reflections on the walls.
Sanctuary within The Temple…Everywhere you looked
there was pure gold: gold chains strung in front of the gold-plated Inner
Sanctuary—gold everywhere—walls,ceiling, floor, and Altar.” Dazzling!
