Little Stained Glass Windows...


~It was amazing! Monarchs everywhere...
I counted ten before I would lose count,
they were fluttering about , mingling with the
Bee's & other insects enjoying the goldenrod.


~"If nothing ever changed, there'd be
no butterflies."
~Unknown


~In all the world no butterflies migrate like the
Monarchs of North America. They travel up to
three-thousand miles twice a year; South in
the fall and North in the spring. To avoid the
long ,cold Northern winters, Monarchs west of
the rockies fly south to the mountain forests of
Mexico. Unlike migrating birds & whales, how-
ever individual Monarchs only make the round-
trip once. It is the great-grandchildren that
return South the following fall.

I love butterflies! It is a long story, but when I see butterflies, I think my Mom and Dad are with me in spirit. My mosaic art always has a butterfly in it...

Thanks for coming by my blog and helping me name my purple flowers!

O provedor paga 20 centavos por hora de conexão discada com ligação local para mais de 2100 cidades do Brasil. O CresceNet tem um acelerador de conexão, que deixa sua conexão até 10 vezes mais rápida. Quem utiliza banda larga pode lucrar também, basta se cadastrar no CresceNet e quando for dormir conectar por discada, é possível pagar a ADSL só com o dinheiro da discada. Nos horários de minuto único o gasto com telefone é mínimo e a remuneração do CresceNet generosa.
