Lots of butterflies in my garden the past couple of weeks, many of them Monarchs. I planted some Milk Weed a few years ago. It comes back every spring, and now I have several established patches which have been producing lots of caterpillars and new Monarchs.

A couple of new digital books so no photo with the flowers.

Extraordinary Birds by Sandy Stark-McGinnis .

The scar on her back is where her wings will sprout; she only needs to find the right tree and practice flying.

Summer is just speeding along for me. Time always seems to pass so much faster when it’s nice outside. We have had a week of beautiful days and I plan to enjoy them as long as they last.

Some new books for the young people in the family … but I enjoy them too. I read Finch right after I took it out of the mailing envelope!

Another busy week ahead, but first up is getting a new phone, which is really more like a handheld computer, but we keep calling it a phone. I even read books on it. So I suppose I will spend this week learning how to work the new one since I’m sure everything has been moved and functions have change. I love technology, but sometimes I hate it too.

And a few new books . . .
