How beautiful Joan. I hope this summer will bring back more butterflies here. The past several years there have been very few of any kind, and I love taking pictures of them.

What a beautiful butterfly. Butterflies and moths on your posts always remind me of John, how I miss his emails.

Have a good night out with Gaelyn, cheers. Diane
