Monarchs Rule!

If you're looking for Odd Shots, please scroll down to the post below. ;-)

I love it when the Echinaceas (purple coneflowers) start to bloom because that means the monarchs will soon be here. Well, the echinaceas are in bloom and...

I thought I saw one flutter by a couple of days ago, but it was only out of the corner of one eye. But look! The camera fianlly caught one; the monarchs are here...and YOU see one too!

I have the cone flowers in my garden but haven't seen any monarchs yet.
I'll have to be more observant cos I'm sure they must be around... as you have seen them and you're not that far away!
