Butterflies & milkweed

So this has nothing to do with my writing - except that being outside and seeing the beauties of nature is fuel for my brain!

My free time lately has gone to yard work in one form or another, but - while I'm burnt crispy lol - I'm kind of loving it. I've set aside a part of my yard as a monarch butterfly retreat...it's planted over with milkweed, and it looks and smells awesome. Best of all, it is a bee, butterfly and bird haven. I've seen a tiny hummingbird flitting around out there, and tons of monarchs! A few shots:

Alas, the hummingbird moves too quick for me to get a picture -- so far. One of these days! :-)
