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.

Fresh. Delicate. Ethereal.
This is just one of the hundreds of Spring blooms in our gardens.
I can’t get enough of this beauty. Simply awesome to see and inhale.
