Happy Thoughts & Butterflies

I was filled with joy as I walked from the beach.
I had sand between my toes and a pocket full of sea glass.
The zinnia's I had seen the week before were fading...
but on this day, they were food for the Monarch's.




Several were dancing about and spreading their wings for the camera.
As we say good bye to the butterflies for this season, I am reminded of a quote I love...

When the world says "Give up"...Hope whispers, "Try it one more time"

  1. The beauty of your photos, Debbie, never fail to amaze me. After showing my husband your photos, he wants to know if you sat there for a long time to capture the butterfly. He too, found your photos sublime.

  12. That butterfly almost looks like a drawing. Its just beautiful Debbie. So something weird. My Google chrome has this post. My Mozilla has the Longwood Garden post. I wonder why. I have two different sets of blogs for everyone. Isn't that weird?
