My birthday- but what has interested me has been the amount of butterflies as symbols on both presents and cards. And we went to a castle today that had a butterfly farm! The butterfly is a symbol to me the transformation taking place in my head and my heart; the process of self-growth and development. There is something incredibly beautiful about a butterfly, but also very fragile and delicate and precious too. Often they are more dull when they are closed up, but when open portray their glory and beauty in their true colours.
