Welcome to my front door,
The Garden Fireworks have started despite this cold and
rainy summer so far!!!
Lily's in full bloom
to celebrate the 4th of July !
The sweet Hummingbirds go crazy over the Menarda,
especially late in the day at twilight, just have not been able
to capture these sweet Faeries yet,
When I first came out the back door on this 4th of July morning,
Cup of coffee and my camera,
A flitter and a flutter caught my eye,
Behold this beauty! A "Mourning Cloak" ! I believe fresh out of the pupa,
still wet on the wings, resting on the ground for quite a while in the warm sun on
the garden soil ! My little granddaughter and I have a favorite 1950's Butterfly Book,
And sure enough, I knew I had seen this butterfly in the book, and there it is,
What a wonderful 4th of July gift !
Have a blessed 4th of July !
