Chunks of fudgesicle melting on your hot tongue. Pungent citronella-candle smell hovering around the porch, whose railing dripped color from tiny twinkle lights. Porch light glowing a relaxed dim-yellow in keeping with the after-dinner mood. Beyond, the garden enveloped in muggy-blue night.
From here they would come, your beloved night butterflies, cloaked in ermine, flitting, resting, fluttering away.
The white ermine moth, Spilosoma lubricipeda, of the family Erebidae : milky white, golden yellow-orange, and black spotted, wearing its royal mantle.
This one is a brooch, to wear your love on your sleeve...lapel, scarf, or collar.
Crafted from velvety upholstery fabric remnants, fake fur, careful embroidery. Wingspan 4 inches (10cm) x 2 inches (5cm) + 1 inch ( 2.5cm) antennae Brooch clasp on the underside of the body. Arrives with a handmade drawstring bag for safe keeping.
Furry, feathered, fleecy, just as you remember them from those childhood summer evenings.
