Butterflies and Flowers....
I bought this rustic garden moose at a yard sale
and stuck it in one of my gardens.
I was tickled one day to look off my porch and see a goldfinch
on its back:
Nothing like baby birds!
This one is a baby Grackle:
A lupine, bent from the rain and wind:
A bee on an unknown blooming branch:
A butterfly on lilacs:
A columbine full of seed pods:
Another columbine. I just love their shape, their tendrils:
I think they call this hawkweed?:
There is just something about flowers and butterflies
that makes me never want to waste a single day in the summer...
how about you?

- I retired in June 2008 and started my blog in November 2008. I worked at several jobs as a Registered Nurse prior to retirement. I LOVE being retired! Blogging has offered me a whole new venue to start writing again and to share new hobbies such as gardening, birdwatching and sharing my nature photography. If you like my blog, PLEASE click on "follow this blog". Having a lot of followers reading my blog gives me incentive to continue to do photography and to continue to write. I also LOVE comments, so I encourage you to leave me a comment after you read my posts. Thanks everyone, for taking the time to read me!!
