A few of my favorite summer things

It is Friday and Fridays are for fun. This is the time of year when things bloom and the monarch butterflies are out and about too. I don’t see as many bees as I used to but it is my understanding that they are all safe and happy in my neighbor’s pollinator gardens and I don’t need to worry about them.

The water lilies are blooming on local lakes.

The coneflowers are just starting to bloom.

I am spending as much time as I can outside but haven’t really gone anywhere this summer except outside. None of the pictures were taken this year but the flowers and the butterfly look the same this year as they did when I took the pictures.
