Butterflies Abound



Our summer season is coming to a close.....



Our apple and pear trees are dropping their fruits and our mornings are becoming cool and foggy.  




Some fruit is picked, some is harvested for deer food plots, and some, sadly, falls to the ground.  





The latter seems to be the best circumstance for the butterflies.  






They do enjoy the sweet fruit on the ground, as well as any wildflower along our road.  


"Happiness is a butterfly, which when persued, is always just beyond your grasp,  but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you."  

Nathaniel Hawthorne

  18. Oh these are so beautiful. Just since the last month or so, the butterflies are just everywhere you look. I've still yet to see the first monarch but many swallowtails and other smaller varieties are plentiful!
