    That’s gorgeous!

  2. What a beauty Pat!!! Thanks as always for sharing the love up-close with I Heart Macro. I hope you will participate in the Gratitude Quilt this year. It is simple to join in and will make your heart happy when you see the love unfurl on Nov 27th. (no sewing involved) Just close your eyes. Exhale. Inhale. Exhale. Ask yourself “what am I grateful for in THIS moment?” listen to your heart and type out the words that flow from your heart and send them to me. There is a link to my email address and a link explaining this project if you don’t know about it yet can be found at the top of my blog. If I’ve already asked you I apologize for being annoying 🙂

  25. I always enjoy seeing the Monarchs. One day I’ll make it to one of their en masse migrations. Love the photo.
