Gifts Come in a Variety of Ways

Friday, September 29

We received this beautiful gift from friends (you know who you are) a few weeks before it bloomed. I thought they may like to see it in bloom.

Thanks to our son Jeff (left) for trimming a few trees along the driveway below our yard.

When I see pretty flowers and butterflies or moths I am thankful to God for the gift of sight.

Fall is a beautiful time of year.

Butterfly Atrium at Hershey Gardens

Saturday, February 4

Visiting Hershey Gardens was the beginning of my birthday week – a gift from Mark and Diane.

We chose to see the butterflies first.

I love butterfly houses – especially in winter.

It was so warm and humid that I had to keep defogging my camera.


This was a huge butterfly near the ceiling. The photo does not show its size.

A Madagascar Hissing Cockroach

That was good for my soul.
