The bumblebees have found my purple coneflowers! I’m still waiting patiently for the Monarchs to arrive. I’ve spotted one Tiger Swallowtail so far.
The “blanket flowers” and butterfly weed and many more plants that attract butterflies, bees, hummingbirds, and yellow finches are just waiting for visitors! I think our cool, wet Spring has affected the pollinators and butterflies so far. So I’ll keep watching!

The worst day of fishing is better than the best day at work.
Sunset fishing at Lake Taneycomo in southern Missouri. He got his line wet, the fish weren’t biting, but he went to sleep relaxed.
It’s all about the bait. And being patient.

“A bad day fishing is better than a good day at work!”
These two with their O’Pa at a favorite pond are simply happy to be casting and reeling and catching little biters.

Autumn … Ahh!
Leaf colors are beginning to change.
It couldn’t have been a more beautiful morning for this long walk in the park!
