The Joys of this Morning

We are having a small summer miracle. After incredibly hot and humid days, which are normal for us in August, we woke up this morning to 71 degrees (21 Celsius) and hardly any humidity. I opened all the windows in the house and then spent the whole morning outside, first walking with Winslow, then on the back porch enjoying the cool breeze and then watering.
Look at that gorgeous bee I found while watering a friend's back yard! It was just stunning!!
And then on our milk week, I counted 30 fat monarch caterpillars. That is so exciting to me. Soon, they'll be able to cocoon and begin the transformation to beautiful butterflies.

It's a good day. I hope for you as well!!



  1. Liebe Silke,

    deine schönen Fotos erfreuen mein

    Alles Liebe

  2. You and your milkweed are certainly doing your bit to help preserve monarch butterflies!

  3. I love monarch butterflies, and I will say that the next one I see came from your yard!!
    Shh....don't tell everyone how wonderful the weather can be in Georgia, that will be our little secret, okay? xx

  4. Wunderschöne Fotos! Dein Garten wird ein Schmetterlingsparadies, wenn sich alle entwickeln! Großartig!

  5. You've gotten the weather we had in Missouri last week! I hope you don't get what we've had this week--heat indexes of over 100 and humid,. Like being in an oven!! I love all your bug and critter photos you've been posting lately. Enjoy the cool!!
