Cherish is my favorite word, and I cherish the ability of turning the routine into a beautiful moment.
Nature creates in me, a spiritual and meditative time to bring peace, harmony and balance, into an otherwise ordinary day~

First flight of a Monarch

First flight of a Monarch Butterfly, just freshly freed from it's chrysalis. Monarch caterpillars munch and like to use the vegetation of Milkweed plants to form their chrysalis. In some areas of the United States this species is being affected by changes in weather patterns. Thousands of these beautiful butterflies migrate hundreds of miles every year. On Tingsgrove and the surrounding area, we do not get to enjoy the presence of these lovely creatures very much~
