Of God’s Creations
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.
I loved that song that was written by Frank Loesser in 1944 and sold to MGM which they used in Neptune’s Daughter and performed by Esther Williams and Ricardo Montalban. It’s since been recorded and sung by many others but no other rendition beats the original or this remake by Homer & Jethro with June Carter.
Spring is on the way but temperatures are still in the 20’s today with snow flurries. Temps are expected to climb into the 50’s by next week so fingers crossed!
