Hurricane Irene

I'm holding everyone on the Eastern Coast close to my heart.  Please be as safe as you can be.

I now have four of these wool yarn pads for my bar stools

I had just about given up on the Monarch butterfly coming to visit me this Summer

Beautiful beautiful Monarch

Love that Monarch shot, amazingly beautiful! You are truly skilled.

Go away, Irene!

My monarchs are always few and mostly stay out in the marsh...hoping to see one soon, but with the hurricane who knows.

What great pictures! This is my first visit so I scrolled back a ways through your blog and must say, I really enjoyed all the pics! The butterfly shots are so sharp & clear that I looked closely to see if you had a fake butterfly you were putting on the flowers! I look forward to following.

I also am keeping those on the East Coast in my thoughts and prayers. Love your chair pads....
I am so happy Monarch came into your garden. I do love the butterflies.

Hoping Irene moves on with as little damage as possible. We are watching from down under, and have much sympathy.
Love your stunning photography!

Hi Angie, Do you have a pattern for your crocheted chair pads? I don't do much crochet, but I think I could handle that... but I'd probably need a pattern so they come out smoothly! ha.

I haven't seen many Monarchs this summer. I'm attributing our very hot, dry weather.

Aren't you so nice to provide meal worms for your blue bird? I should really do this next year!! (Do orioles range your way? Perhaps a different variety?)

What beautiful photos of the monarchs. Great work on the chair pads, they look nice and comfy.

Thanks for stopping by Angie! I love your pictures! I have scrolled back a few posts and really enjoyed the view! We didn't get very many Monarchs this year, I am not sure if it was the heat or the humidity!

Hi. I love the pics and your blog. Nice work with the chair pads made of wool yarn. About the hurricane, I must say it's terrible... and NY is almost like Japan

MARCIE said...

You and your amazing photos! Wow!
We survived Irene, thankfully. How did your sister fare?
Thanks for your sweet concern Angie.

I need some new chair pads. I wonder how it would work to make two crocheted circles and add some padding in between.
