First Milkweed Seeds 8/9/14

Flashback Thursday, August 9, 2012 – This is my pick photo for today and it stars a honeybee on the pretty orange flowers (butterfly weed – Asclepias tuberosa) in my neighbors’ parking strip. Love the clear shot of the bee with the vibrant greens and oranges!

Flashback Friday, August 9, 2013 – This is my pick photo for today and hubby got to choose as today celebrates 22 years of marriage together 🙂
August 9, 2013 sigSaturday, August 9, 2014 – A few milkweed pods have ripened and the red milkweed beetles are continuing to feed.  The insect in the pod is a milkweed bug, though these seem to eat more than just milkweed because I see them in the backyard where I don’t have any milkweed yet.  Spearmint and fennel also grow in my milkweed strip and here is a tiny little native bee and a honeybee enjoying the blossoms.  Happy Anniversary to my honey for 23 years of marriage!  I love you 🙂

Dream the impossible dream and the world will not grind you under, it will lift you up. This is the trick. This is what all these teachers and philosophers who really counted, who really touched the alchemical gold, this is what they understood. This is the shamanic dance in the waterfall. This is how magic is done. By hurling yourself into the abyss and discovering its a feather bed.”
