an unexpected gift…

An unexpected gift greeted me this morning…

a Monarch butterfly winged a visit

to the purposefully planted milkweed plant

growing among the perennials…

gently floating in the air,

giving hope and promise

to the day…

and to the survival of the MONARCH

    Beautiful.  Thanks for sharing.  Please forgive this very informal, and tardy, thank you.  We are so enjoying the zucchini, and the little patty pan squash!  The honey is delish, and I have shared some with my neighbor who doesn’t get out much, and he has raved about it also. Blessings for a beautiful day,MariG
