The fritillaries and other butterflies and I got to be great friends during the warm weather last year. A wonderful benefit of all the hard work in the garden is not only pretty flowers, but the guests they entice to visit!!

    Sometimes it’s good to go back to past images. Once again they become fresh and allow for a new perspective!

  • Soooo true!!! Plus, how nice to think of warm sunlight and all that goes with the summer months on these icy cold days!!!
