Off She Flies....


I took this photo with my iphone! Amazing, no? Well, not really..I took a bunch more all of which were blurry or couldn't catch the butterflies in a position where they looked pretty. So odds are, when you take that many, at least ONE is going to turn out, right?

I thought this was an appropriate pic to leave as I fly off again. Look at the color on this butterfly. Isn't he/she just beautiful!?

This was taken at the Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Center in Grand Rapids last week. Dianne picked me up from the airport and took me straight there for a bit of indoor site seeing!

It was 90 and humid in the butterfly garden area....lovely! If you ever get a chance to go, don't miss it. There is lots to see indoors, and the grounds are wonderful...AMAZING sculptures. Do not miss the American Horse sculptures!

This pic was also taken by iphone through the plane window as my flight was nearing Chicago from Grand Rapids. I wish it was more clear, but I loved this view! It was a different direction than my flights to Chicago usually take me. Fun to see the lake, the city in the distance, the interstate that leads right to it.

I fly back on April Fools Day. Hmmmm..something to think about there. At any rate, I'll talk to you soon!

Thank you for that touch of spring. We are still looking at patches(small, mind you) of snow. Did see some pussy willows and a huge flock of robins so I guess warm weather is on its way. Envy you your flying courage...I'm a wimp when it comes to flying. I enjoy your blogs. Keep on keeping on.

I love the Meijer Gardens. I'm glad your hosts (from my old Guild) took you there on your way out of the mitten state.
