What are those little specs on there? I hope not little critters that will destroy my harvest.

And after looking at all those goodies, Bear and I took an afternoon stroll around the back-forty. ย There were a bunch of Monarch butterflies out there flitting around but they would not sit still long enough for me to train my camera on them. ย So once again there are a lot of pictures of flowers and a Bear and not much else. ย The meadow is really coming alive now. ย See for yourself

Black Eye Susans everywhere.
