Roxie and I are excited to begin our 2018 butterfly gardens!
Our new book “The Monarch” by Kylee Baumle is just packed with information about the Monarch eggs, caterpillars, chrysalis stage, and the eclosing of the beautiful Monarch! (This book is available on Amazon.com I’m recommending the book as a personal user and do not receive any compensation for my recommendation.)
Help save the pollinators and butterflies! Create your own special garden either in containers or in the ground by using a variety of milkweed plants and native host and nectar plants in your growing area!

Visit your nearest botanical garden(s) for information on butterfly and pollinator gardening.

Whether you’re a business professional, a CEO, a college grad, a student/entrepreneur, a child model, a singer/dancer, or a stay-at-home-parent re-entering the work force, you need a great head shot for your business cards and your website!
Does your headshot communicate professionalism? your joy in living? your passion for a career or hobby? If someone sees your headshot, will he or she take you seriously?
These are just a sampling of headshots in my portfolio — you’ll see a variety of ages and styles and messages that these want to convey to others!
Be sure to contact me if you need a new headshot!

This is the last Monarch to visit our butterfly garden in 2016. We enjoyed each and every one that we saw, and thank God for His creation and their beauty! The monarchs enjoyed our butterfly weed, milkweed plants, and butterfly bushes (this one is named “Ruby”) as well as the zinnias and impatiens blooming here.
Read more about Monarchs and their migration here and on other sites that you find when searching Google for “monarchs” and “migration.”
Remember to save your flower seeds and plant in the early spring to help make your environment more butterfly friendly!

“The Orchid Show–Madagascar 2013” is in full bloom through March 31 at the St Louis Botanical Garden. It’s a colorful and fragrant place to visit during the dullness of the winter!
The Garden has about 7,000 individual orchid plants representing approximately 280 genera and more than 2,500 unique orchid taxa.
Volunteers spend weeks designing and arranging the orchid show each year. This year’s theme highlights the Garden’s long-standing research and conservation work in Madagascar.

I enjoyed a photo shoot with High School Senior, Grace, on a bright summer day. She’s so photogenic!
I wish her all the best in her senior year and in her future college studies to become a nurse.
