Pic and a Word #277: Leaves

Today a collection of this year’s leaves from around here, some with butterflies, plus four old leaf photos from Slovenia. Where I’ll be this time next week.







1 leaf : everywhere leaves
I leave : everybody leaves

Yes, it’s time. I’ve been waiting for this: the departure time is known. I shall be leaving here for Slovenia in exactly one week.

I am more convinced than ever that movement is the meaning of life. Migration is a thing. We need it, it makes sense. Butterflies know all about it.

And since butterflies look a little like leaves, here they are, ones and the others, sometimes together. The first photo, taken in my parents’ garden in Piran three years ago, started off this post and made me gather more butterflies.

All the other photos are from this year around here, except the last three are a return to Slovenia and to a lovely October stroll through Park Tivoli in Ljubljana.

The last photo says something in Japanese. Yes, Ljubljana, I love you too and all of you, my friends. The wind has picked up and it makes it much easier to bear the heat. Be well.

  1. Regarding those red leaves you really like- We had two hedges of those at our old house in Calif. I liked them too and the little white flowers they produced in Spring.

    One of those butterflies reminded me a little of the Buckeye one we have, and two others you have I think we have too. The Acmon Blue,
    and the Orange Sulphur.

    OMGosh, how much does the rock look like a fish head!!! 😂

    I’m so excited for you to go to Solvenia next week!!! I am looking forward to your reunion posts. Happy trails, and a safe journey!

    1. Thank you so much, Deborah. Can’t wait to go there and see if “Solvenia” will help me solve my lacks (of company, of chatting, of family, of this and that…). I know that you didn’t write Solvenia on purpose but I can’t believe that I had never thought of this pun before. “Come to Solvenia and solve all your problems!” 😀

    1. Ahh, thank you kindly, Patrick. Life, indeed, and what else can we do but track down how it passes?

      These words from the couplet came to me as I woke up today and was thinking about what to put on my blog. I have a question and please tell me the truth: Did you notice that there is a number “1” in the first line of my couplet, and not “I”? It’s barely noticeable.


Happy to learn the first thing on your mind.
