Aha! A Monarch Butterfly Visits Us!

 

Welcome to Our Balcony in San Diego, Sir or Ms. Monarch!*

 

A Magnificent Beauty Arrives!

I had just sat down  looking out at our 2nd floor balcony, when all of a sudden, a beautiful Monarch butterfly visited!

I grabbed my Nikon Coolpix L830 and put it on the “close up” setting and snapped away!

This post will be super short and sweet..

-Just a way to share how gorgeous this colorful butterfly was!

Enjoy these photos, feel free to like, comment and share this post link.

Beauty in nature abounds, we just need to look for it, spot it and savor the beauty of it!

Enjoy!

 

p.s. (*I didn’t get a chance to determine if it was a male (black spot on hind wing) or female (no black spot)!

Funny thing is, I just bought those two plants a few days ago and haven’t even planted them yet!

Lucky enough to catch the butterfly in flight, although a bit blurred!

Hope your day is as delightful as this butterfly’s has been!

Sunset and Moon for Kate, October 25, 2015

For Kate

by

Susan J. Farese, SJF Communications

Tonight we said goodbye to Kate

So fiercely talented, in the know.

Loving Wife, guiding Mom to her daughters

With pen in hand, her words would flow…

She touched many lives in so many ways

by guiding and writing & teaching

A Theatre Mom supporting the arts

Her essence in life so far reaching.

As we left her Memorial Service

An amazing sight was seen

The most brilliant magnificent sunset

With bright light among hues pristine.

In the midst of that glorious sunset

A shining light appeared…as if to say

My friends, I’ll be with you in spirit

Think of me as the sun goes away.

And when we returned home

I peeked at the moon

So bright, full and gleaming with light…

And I pondered, so thankful

For Kate and her life

Touching ours

Dear Kate, Farewell,

Goodnight.
