Time to Fly

Time to Fly

It's fall, and millions of monarch butterflies are migrating
 to warmer climates for the winter—
heading either to the California coast or through here in south Texas
 to certain mountains in Mexico.

My friends Karen and Steve took this photo recently of
Monarch Butterflies in their yard.
They said there were several hundred in their trees
out by their picnic table.
What a beautiful site to see!
I just had to share it with all of you.
Click on the photo to enlarge it
for a more spectacular view.

"Just living is not enough," said the butterfly, "one must have sunshine, freedom and a little flower."
---Hans Christian Anderson

"You can chase a butterfly all over the field and never catch it. But if you sit quietly in the grass it will come and sit on your shoulder." ---Author Unknown

Karen states."God truly is the greatest artist!!"

I totally agree!

Savor the Day!

These almost ethereal winged spirits delight the eyes and hearts of an artist. Miracles do happen! Peace, Mary Helen
