Magical moments

Overnight Mother Nature
added a magical touch.

She showed me how orange
goes well with gray.

I am in nature's design class.
I am learning about color.

I love orange and grey. I also love black and grey together. xoxo Nita

Oooo, I love the mushroom. They often have faeries beneath them, or other sorts of elementals.

The butterfly is so pretty.

Dear Nita,
Each day in October this year I am looking at all the different color combinations of orange in nature. I look at the splash of orange here and there. The orange and grey gave me a great idea for an outfit!

Dear Mon@rch,
The Gray Hairstreak is so fun to watch.
I like the little butterflies as much as the large swallowtails.

Dear Sprite,
The rain showers this week helped the mushrooms and toadstools to sprout right up!
I do think they add a nice touch to the October gardens.
Having elementals about is a delight. Always Faeries!!!

THAT is a beautiful butterfly. New for you, Sherry?

Dear Mary,
The Gray Hairstreak is new to me this year. I do not see them very often. They are very tiny.
There are lots of different types of Hairstreaks and I hope more find their way here.

_Never_ have I seen this one.

Dear Mari-Nanci,
I had thought the Gray Hairstreak was new this year but when I checked in my butterfly book I saw I had seen one last year at this time.
They are lovely and so tiny too!
