I am sharing the last of the photos I took at the Upper Garden, at least until I get there another time.  No more narrative, just the photos.

  4. Lovely photographs once again. I particularly like the 10th picture down. I missed the butterfly at first. I saw it as I was scrolling down. I scrolled back up to get a better look at it :)

  13. I have always said that I wanted to plow up my backyard and plant nothing but wild flowers. Cone flowers and Black Eyed Susan would look great in my plowed up back yard (in my mind).....but alas, that would mean more weeding! haha....Great photos. Very, very pretty.

I thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I enjoy reading them very much and always try to return a visit. As I do monitor comments it may take a while for them to appear, even quite late depending on what is going on and how much time I am able to spend on the computer.

Also, there are times when I delete by mistake, so if something you have written to me is gone, it's usually because my fingers have pushed the wrong button!
