Chasing Butterflies!What is it about butterflies as they flit, dart and flicker across a meadow that entices our hearts to soar? You want to lift your spirits? Watch some butterflies. Plant some butterfly bushes, grow a patch of milkweed and wildflowers, watch them arrive. It will do you a world of good and do the world good in return!

Which lead to a week or so later when I specifically went out to find some Monarch Butterflies to photograph.
|Dogs and Butterflies!|
My dogs followed me out to the field... here you can see Fawn tagging along!

|Willow, watching with interest!|
|Molly, my golden retriever loving the alfalfa field! Bunny hunting, no doubt. |
The good thing for the bunnies, she is too slow to catch them... but don't let
her know I said so! :)
|The milkweed patch my husband thoughtfully requested it not be mowed down. |
The Monarchs preferred plant to cocoon on. Save the milkweed= saves the Monarch!
Have a great day and may you find things that make your spirit soar!
