Although it's begun to get chilly here at night, while I was out removing the spent blooms from the Butterfly Bush this past week, I spotted a Monarch butterfly. It's time for you to hit the road, isn't it? I thought. In fact, working around the yard getting things cleaned up for Fall, each time I see it I wonder when it will depart. As of today it is still feeding off the Butterfly Bush and the bright purple Asters.
Remembering the Butterfly Farm in Aruba, and where I began learning about Milkweed and the Monarchs, I began going through some of the pix. I wish I knew what this one was, and where it is from. (I'm guessing South America but honestly don't know.)
Meanwhile, my daughter asked me if I'd be interested in doing a "stay-cation" at their house while they go away for a week.
I didn't have to think. "Absolutely, I'd love to If I have anything going on, I'll be back to your place feed the kitty." However, after checking my calendar, the timing of their trip will work perfectly with my schedule. It just so happens that the week they need me, I am not doing any volunteer work nor do I have any meetings! Using time away at their place to get some R & R, when I return I have 3 nights of meetings, one Eagle presentation to attend and one very special night that I can't tell you about YET.
just seeing, saying, and sharing...
Time To Hit The Road
