Finally, this morning, we found beautiful Monarch butterflies, sharing a display of white Buddleia davidii with Painted Ladies, at the Homestead Garden Center.
Such a pleasure to finally spot one in our area, fueling up on nectar, preparing for the long migration south.

Your monarch is beautiful, I can never get that close to take pictures of them when they are in my garden! Looks like the snow and sleets in coming in on Tuesday all day and Wednesday, are you ready!?
check out my cheesecake with strawberry topping post,
Hi Michael- Your cheesecakes are always gorgeous. I haven’t gotten to visit your blog yet, but hope to today. I spent the afternoon finally at the doc getting a Rx, and the evening with Ringo and Paul. I’m looking forward to checking out your recipe. A shame we can’t post tastes or sniffs as easily as we post photos….. Best wishes, WG
Thanks for the kind word on the photo. The butterflies just get blissed out on the Lantana and ignore me completely. We’re in search of the elusive ice melt at the moment, but otherwise are bracing ourselves for round 3. Stay warm, WG
Hurray that the butterfly visited you, it is so windy here today, I think the butterflies are being blown south 🙂 Annie
You are probably right, Annie. Is the winter storm forecast to head your way? I’m so sad to see all of the snow on trees in Wyoming and the Nebraskas.
No snow, just rain for us this time.
😉 Happy you are getting rain, and your trees will survive the autumn without snow and ice. We are looking forward to rain later this weekend, too.
