Monarch butterfly! This is the only one we have seen this year and it was in our backyard. (For all we know, there might have been dozens of them, but maybe they came down when we were at work!)
Have you seen any?
We only see the rose breasted grosbeak as it migrates in the Spring and Fall. Richard was able to get a photo of the female as it was drinking water from our small bird dish on our patio this week. (It has the top of the watering can in front of it.) I tried very hard to get a photo of this bird myself but when I saw it, it was eating the berries off the beauty berry bush and it just would not hold still long enough for me to photograph it!
Have you seen any birds that you don't normally see? Chances are that they might be migrating!
Above is a a photo of the postcard that I mailed to my Dad...I sent him another one that he never received. It was reported on the news tonight that a postal employee had dumped several batches of mail on the side of the road in Atlanta! (There was the postcard that my Dad never got, I bet!) Oh well, good thing I thought to send him two, so at least he got one!
Have you ever had mail to go astray and you have no idea what happened to it?
My friends, I have been a bit under the weather this week...nothing serious but I hope to be better soon.
Keep looking for birds and butterflies...and I will ask my Dad to keep looking for that other postcard!
