Dearborn, Michigan, USA
This was my favorite building in Greenfield Village. Enjoy the summer!
Pictures of the “fake” blue orchids I received on Mother’s Day. Supposedly if they ever rebloom they will flower white because they somehow must place blue dye in the soil or water or something to get them to do this. Pretty fascinating really.
They are beautiful.
I feel sad that our later generations might not ever see these beautiful creatures except in some “Butterfly House.” Over 50 years ago butterflies were plentiful, this is no longer the case.
There are numerous reasons why this has happened. Besides the overuse of pesticides and herbicides in our culture, most of our fields are now parking lots just like the song.
Enjoy these lovely Monarchs, it’s about time for their migration in Michigan. They claim they fly through the summer but I have usually seen them in late summer in my area.
