We also went to Martha Lafite while we were in the area. I always enjoy the butterfly garden there, I believe Linda has a hand in that too. We spotted about 6 monarch caterpillers on the butterfly weed. Which, reminds me I need to get out and weed out the creeping grass from our butterfly garden.

We went downtown EX Sps to pay our water bill and the garden back of the gift shop was really pretty and I had to get a couple of photos. I need to visit the garden shops back garden, but didn't feel like it today.

Sat. we went to Lawrence, KS to the Monarch Open House and Plant Sale on the KU campus. We have been interested in this organization for several years now. We have reared Monarchs and Swallowtails in our garden as some of you have seen our photos.
I registered to be a Monarch Waystation a couple of years ago. If you are interested to learn more about this Monarch organization go to http://www.monarchwatch.org/.

We discovered another little cafe to try sometime soon. It is located in an antique shop called Clearfield Farm. The sink and bathtub is a fountain in the garden located in the back of the shop. We had a nice visit with the owner, she is an interesting person, loves riding Harleys. She has a fun website, http://www.clearfieldfarmantiques.com/ it includes menu too.

Earlier in the day, we went to Watkins (which is a state park) Ken wanted to see if we would see any birds today. There was a group of kids with their leader checking out nature too. We saw a Tanager and an Indigo Bunting and the Yellow-rumped Warblers and this follow who let me photograph his catch of the day, morel mushrooms. I was playing around with my Collage Creater so you will have to click on the pic if you want to see the morels.
Each moment is a place you've never been.

I guess, the salamander and butterflies aren't birds, but I can capture them with my camera, except the tiger swallowtail and admiral butterflies they wouldn't pose for me.
