In case you didn’t notice it’s Spring time, look at this.  I took it late this morning in Shuwaikh.  The little flowers were in a pot and the surrounding area was full of butterflies.  I don’t know what family this butterfly is from, but I know I’ve always seen it in Kuwait.  I have many childhood memories of this exact colour.  I remember catching them and placing them into jars – only to watch them stop moving a while later.  Before you write to the UN, we were five or six at the time.

I promised the family I would buy these flowers in the hope of attracting butterflies into our garden.

UPDATE 23 03 2009

The flowers are called Lantanas & the butterfly is called Plain Tiger.
