Want a "Quickie" ? Today 9.17.14


(All “Quickies” are photos taken and posted the same day)
These are only a few of the many photos taken this afternoon on a slow walk around the many garden rooms in the Gardens at Waters East.  - 9.17.14   Lots of activities with bugs, butterflies and more – plus many flowers yet in bloom.
It is a nice September stroll.

 So many Monarchs this year.
That is a good thing!

no photos are “staged”, “arranged”, or ”photo-shopped” in anyway.

  1. Beautiful set of pictures. I am glad to hear you have lots of Monarchs,because we sure don't see many here.

  2. I love your pics with Monarchs. What a beautiful butterfly it is. We haven't got them here in Sweden.
    Thanks for your visit to my blog.

  3. Thanks for comments in my blog! Nice pictures in yours, like specially the monarch, I´ve never seen it in real life, only at pictures.
    Have a good time.
