Mother Nature . . . a million blooms . . . and that million and one is just as spectacular. ❤

This past weekend I was doing some serious trimming around the garden and found a chrysalis on a branch I was hauling roadside. I clipped it off and brought it on the patio . . . and yesterday morning, before work, I spotted this beauty. I've probably seen hundreds of emerging butterflies, but it never gets old.
I didn't want him to be stuck on the patio all day, so I transported him to the butterfly garden to finish drying and by lunch he was long gone. Today I had two monarchs fluttering about. I'd like to think he (or she) was one of them.
I have been a nature lover my whole life . . . and even after all these years . . . I still think it's magical!
