STORM CLOUDS - - - at the GAWE

Had a storm blow through this afternoon - August 30, 2017.  It made for some interest and turbulent cloud formation, over Lake Michigan and over the gardens.  This is the Gardens at Waters East living a different view for this posting.

 The storm begins.

 Like dancers in the sky!

WANT a "QUICKIE" ? Today -- Monarch

Quickie Today!!!
The Monarchs are here.  Took these photos today of the many many many --  dozens of them, Monarchs in the Butterfly Garden. Some laying eggs, others hatching into caterpillars and everyone feeding on a beautiful sunny day!
There were years when only a couple (two to five) would be seen all season.  This year is different.  There are so many here this year.
A joy to see and a joy to know that their numbers have increased.




There we numerous other "kinds" of butterflies but this posting is limited only to the Monarch.
