Every day I become more and more enchanted by the garden and the elements it hosts. Take a Monarch butterfly, circling the butterfly weed. I am like a little child when they fly by. I have to run down the stairs to get the camera, thinking all a long the way I should always have it on me. Fortunately for me the butterfly continued its unique dance. The lifecycle of a Monarch is six to eight weeks –cherish its graceful visit.
