Wildflowers

Monarch Butterflies rarely sit still long enough for good photos, but these two were much too busy to fly away. I was careful not to disturb them, as we are all entitled to some privacy at times!

Wildflowers were putting on a lovely show by the edge of the lake last week.

I struggle to keep thistles out of my garden, but I must admit the flowers are beautiful, and the Goldfinches love them.

I’m always a little sad to see Goldenrod blooming, as it means Summer is coming to an end.

Just as well I made the effort to take these photos.  When I returned the next day, the rangers had cut them all down. 😦

  1. You were lucky with the goldenrod! Haven’t seen that plant since we moved from our old house. Hope all is good with you and yours, Jane.

    • Nice to hear from you Meanderer. I am doing well. Did not know you had moved to Wales. I vacationed there once as a child. Beautiful country!

      • Yes – we’ve been here just over 3 years now and I’m still suffering from homesickness! It is a beautiful country; so green!
