Garden Fireworks !


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 !
