There were so many shades of pink in the sky, so pretty. But my camera wasn't cooperating. :-(
Yesterday I had errands to run. One of the things was letting Kathleen use her allowance money she's been saving for. So she decided on the newest Barbie movie.
I'll say Barbie has sure changed a lot since I was little! LOL Cute movie.
Then we picked up some craft supplies. One of her favorite things to do is paint so she selected these for Halloween.
Pretty cool paint on the bat...it glows in the dark! LOL
He surprised me with something else last night. He found this 12 piece dish set as a goodwill store for $20.00. China set made in Japan. Not antique, but beautiful! It has cups with saucers, plates, salad bowls and dessert dishes. Again the pictures don't do it justice. I rearranged my hutch today. washed everything and put it away. He always thinks of me and I am so blessed to have him in my life.
I also thought I would share some interesting facts with you about Monarch butterflies: I received the information from Birds and Blooms Magazine. I enjoy teaching these type of nature facts to both my girls.
100 plus female monarchs lay 100 eggs or more on a single milkweed plant
60 degrees is the temperature monarchs need it to be before they can warm their muscles up to fly.
There are only 12 mountaintops in Mexico where you can find Monarch butterflies during the winter.
Monarchs travel an average of 50 miles a day during their migration
A tagged Monarch once traveled 265 miles in a single day!
Most Monarchs typically spend only two to six weeks in butterfly form. The first three to four weeks of life are spent as an egg, as a caterpillar and in a chrysalis
Only some Monarchs migrate. Roughly four generations of monarchs live and die in any given year.
I just love the beauty and grace of a butterfly. :-) Hope you are all having a great day!
Been having real issues with the new picture upload feature on blogger. Anyone else having trouble?
