Normally this time of the year I have plenty of butterfly snapshots, but theyâ€™ve been scarce thus far.
I am pleased to see monarchs fluttering about, the cabbage whites are becoming more visible, and Iâ€™ve spotted a few admirals, but not as plentiful as seasons past.
Those I do see are either too fast or too far away from my camera.
Nonetheless, the gardens are vibrant with beautiful flowers and I love the scent of summer wafting along.
Such stately flowers.
They are so gorgeous standing tall in numerous groupings around my neighborhood.
There are also other flowers whose names I donâ€™t know, but their scents are lovely.
A stroll after a downpour always brings out freshness and pretty droplets.
And OK, the World Cup may be done, but orange is still abundantâ€¦
Bunnies are munching on the lawns.
The â€œtoddlersâ€ are so adorable.
Itâ€™s so good to love life, to enjoy old love and new love alike.
So much prettiness makes my heart sing.
Delicate yet strong.
Life looks rosy from this angle.
Flowers brighten up the grey.
Hereâ€™s to more sunshine and flowers as summer continues.
