7/11/12 Marsh Island Natural Area

A pleasant day for a little wandering. Decided to return to the Marsh Island area to check the milkweed and see if there were lots of Monarchs- there were only a couple and much of the milkweed seems to not yet be in full flower. As usual when wandering these confusing trails we ended up in places we didn't intend- like people's backyards. Kelley was able to fine some water so she was happy.  We did find some other nice butterflies.

A pleasant 2 hour walk                                                                                                                   


  1. Hi John...No bears this time??
    Gosh that first photo is lovely, lots of color!!
    Queen Ann's Lace plant is a great subject for photo taken ..I just posted some today!!
    Love the looks like a birds eye!!
    If you show up in my back yard, I'll offer you a glass of iced tea, and Kelley can play with the water hose : }}}

  2. Hi Grace - nothing larger than a butterfly. Thanks for your nice comments.

  3. Watch your back while you're taking those closeups John. Bears eat more than just wild berries. Oh, and don't pack any peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for lunch. (I know you wouldn't).

  4. Thanks for your concern JohnW- peanut butter and jelly??

  5. You know...sweet and honey.

  6. Ah -hadn't thought of that
