J for Joy

 The Common Jay Graphium doson brings joy wherever it goes. Some of these butterflies are green, and some are blue.

Justicia carnea is also known as Jacobinia canea. It blooms constantly, easy to propagate, and loves to stay in the shade. A jazzy flower!
I am linking to ABC Wednesday  and Michelle's Nature Notes.

  2. Very joyful pictures. When I was a little girl in Sunday School we say a little song...Joy and the letters stood for Jesus, Others and You. It was a cute little song to depict JOY! God's creation is always a JOY to behold.
