Hi, There!

The challenge over at Ching-Chou Kuik for the month of June is Butterflies:)  So I just had to be part of this challenge as I love butterflies.  They are so pretty, gentle, happy and peaceful fluttering around your garden.  His way of saying enjoy the nature I created for you.  

I wish I had a garden devoted to just the butterflies .... but I do have hummingbird feeders that are blessed with daily visitors of brilliant colors!!!   

We actually had a pheasant visiting us for awhile and he was so much fun to watch - now I hope he has just found better feeding grounds and nothing happened to him.  We also have a male wild turkey that loves to strut his stuff around the wild female turkeys that come to feed here too!!!  Yes - jungle habitat here!!  LOL  Till next time, enjoy nature when you can, hugs and blessings ~ CaroleAnn
