Would You Like To Go Butterfly Watching With Us?

Cool... Fossils on a Rock!!!

We love Spring... so much new Life springs forth that it is truly an enchanting Season... would you like to go Butterfly watching with us today?  Princess T and I love to seek out as many Butterflies as we can and they are the most cooperative of muses for the amateur Photographers and Nature enthusiasts.  Princess T spied a Lunar Moth this day, he was hiding, but for sharp little young eyes his camoflauge attempt was no match! *winks*  She's pretty low to the ground too... and with eyes like a Rat I usually send her Scouting for my Kodak Moments in Nature. *Smiles*  We'll take you on a tour of a traditional Native American  Hogan too... a fun place to pretend and imagine how her Great-Granddad's Ancestors might have lived here in the Desert. 

I think maybe we might want to build one of these on our acreage one day so we can enjoy our imaginings more often and have one of our very own!  Didn't you always love your own little primitive dwelling when you were young?  Was it a Tree House?  A Fort?  A Dug-Out?  A Snow Igloo or Ice Castle?  A Blanket Tent hung from the clothesline?  A little nestled out spot among some overgrown bushes or shrubs?  A large Cardboard Box House?  Ah yes, Butterfly watching and pretending... isn't it grand... we Hope you'll come again soon and have more fun with us...  Princess T and Gramma Dawn... The Bohemians 

Love is like a butterfly, it goes where it pleases and it pleases wherever it goes.
Love is like a butterfly, hold it too tight, it'll crush. Hold it too loose, it'll fly.
