Daily Pics 2020, #70.

A view of the river.

Good morning!  I hope everyone is feeling well this morning.  If not, then I hope that these nice summery pics can bring a smile to your face today.  It’s another cool day here, feeling more like winter again after a couple of nice spring like days.  Nonetheless, spring is getting closer all the time.  I am really looking forward to walking back down to the river once again.  It is just so nice and peaceful down there.  A great way to get rid of any stress that might come along.  Just roll it up, toss it in the river and say good bye to it.  Figuratively speaking of course.  Watching all the birds arrive in the spring, should be quite busy at the river during the spring migration period.  And hopefully a good time to get more mushroom pics as well.

But for now, some nice bright butterfly pics to enjoy…


Starting off with a nice bright fritillary and it is bright even though this is the underside of the wing which is usually the dull side.IMG_5507

The same butterfly still sitting on some nice bright blue delphiniums.IMG_4821

And then there is this little butterfly, not sure of the name, but still nice and bright surrounded by beautiful green and some wildflowers too.  A nice summer scene.

There we have today’s picks of pics for your enjoyment.  Have a wonderful day and God bless!

Steve and Muffin.

      • Patches of it. 3 to 4 inches deep. Some drifts a little deeper! As long as it continues to be above freezing during the day we have maybe a week or so left before it’s all gone. Unless…… you leave that fridge door open again… 😬🤨😉🤠

      • You’re still above freezing every day? We had -8F this morning, supposed to rise to 25 though. We have about 6 to 8 inches of snow, but hillsides have no snow.


      • Just between here and the border there is a big difference. Their snow is gone 2 weeks before us. But there sure is a lot of open water on the lake already and that is quite early. Although it’s mainly because they are still letting out so much water through the dam.


  1. Ahhh… sure that makes sense. The ice is starting to turn white on the lake now. Another week and it will start to turn dark and disappear! YAY!! It’s unreal how much cold air comes off of the ice when your out walking around the lakes.

  2. Beautiful. I love butterflies.

    If I create the right garden we should have some visit. I see some out the front of the house and in neighbours gardens. So here’s hoping.

    • Yes, butterflies are great to have around and the right flowers will do it hopefully.
      We used to have a lot of butterflies in this area but now there isn’t nearly as many.
      Have a great day Chrissy!😀😺🦋🦋
