I am sockless

My socks are completely knocked off. I took a few hundred photos today (now "yesterday" since I'm re-posting), while swimming through the zinnias in my backyard. Butterflies, bees, spiders.... all loving the garden.

I'd been keeping an eye out for the Monarch's. I knew they were passing through, but I hadn't seen any for a few days. I wasn't sure if I'd missed 'em.

Here's the view from the office where I do my morning workout. From here - I took a closer look and I saw them! I grabbed my camera and ran outside.

I had to move in to get a really good perspective.

Finally, I was able to get some awesome close-ups. For an overview, check out my other blog: amothersangst.

Dammit I want a yard that makes me sockless, and not just because the stupid dogs have stolen my socks and are toying with them somewhere in the back yard that I fondly refer to as the mudpit, but because it is so amazingly beautiful and full of flowers,bees and butterflies that my socks literally come flying off in amazement like something out of Mary Poppins, or some such.

you gotta wonder said...

Aw....I'm sure someday you can be sockless too. Or at least have socks that sag at your ankles. Have you set up the pots in your backyard yet?
