Nature In Hand.

Monarch butterfly in hand. soft butterfly in hand little mushroom little moth little moth

I love to hold nature in the palm of my hand.
From Monarch butterflies to wild mushrooms to little intricate moths & everything in between!
The Monarch pictured above was found on the side of the road; I brought it home.
The mushroom was uprooted and laying dislodged on the ground, so I brought it home.
The wee moth was trying to get inside my home, so I brought him back outside.

I only wish I had little frogs and toads in my backyard! 
I'd love to pick them up & give them little high fives for being so fabulous.
I did see a chipmunk scrounging for food a few days ago, which gave me such happiness!
I miss having ample amounts of chipmunks running amok in my gardens.
Ah, nature. You're wonderful when you're small enough to fit in the palm of my hand.

with joy,
Caren
