I am a 75 year old woman who is disabled and retired. I am married 54 years and we have a daughter, son-in-law, and 3 grandchildren in OK and a son and daughter-in-law and grandson in CA. You can read more about me by clicking on scoliosis on the sidebar. Also about my husband living with MS.
We had been having temperatures in the 90's with heat index up to 110 here in the South. Last week we finally had a few days of more comfortable days heat wize and with less humidity. I took advantage of this by having my lunch on our screen porch. I love it out there where I can enjoy our flowers and listen to the birds sing. As I was eating my lunch, I noticed the butterflies on our butteryfly bushes. They were really enjoying their lunch too. After lunch I went out to try to capture the beauty. Of course, as I was trying to take pictures, they would fly from flower to flower and be upside down or their beautiful wings turned away from me. I wish I had gotten a wing spread of the black butterfly--it was beautiful!
I hope you enjoyed the pictures that I was able to get.
