Friday’s Hunt v3.23

Friday’s Hunt

This week the search is on for Starts with W, Week’s Favorite, and Pastel. 

To save time, I’m sharing a “one-shot does all.” 

The pastel green fennel in the background is wet from the rain, and this Monarch butterfly on milkweed is my Week’s Favorite.

Spending time with family this weekend, so I’ll be by to visit your blogs the first of the week. Have a great weekend!

    • Thanks, Anita. I’ve done that with the Black Swallowtails (they’re more plentiful in my garden). I love the whole process of metamorphosis, as I’m sure you do. Have a blessed week, my friend.

  1. A really pretty picture, Patti. So neat with the butterfly.
    Enjoy your family weekend. Thank you too for finding time to peek in on me and for leaving your nice comment. After the Army at El Paso five years I was in New Hampshire for three and then back to Texas again and stayed ever since. Only to my home state of Nebraska to visit.

  2. What a beautiful photo! I love trying to take butterfly photos. One particular moment of butterfly hunting didn’t turn out so great for me and the camera. I was busy going after the butterfly and fell into a hole. I hurt myself something fierce and broke my Nikon, too. I was more upset about the broken camera than the potentially broken leg. 🙂

    What is that flower that the butterfly is on?

    Have a blessed weekend!

      • I think the rest of the family thought I was a weirdo for crying over the camera and not being worried about my leg. haha

        Thank you. Another blogger sent me some milkweed seeds. I couldn’t remember what it was supposed to look like. I need to find out when and howit is supposed to be planted here in this part of Texas and get it planted.
        Blessings to you, too. 🙂

          • Thanks! I can’t either. I would love to have a yard full of Monarchs. 🙂 I saw one at the zoo a while back sitting on some lantana, which we do have in our yard. It isn’t flowering at the moment. The zoo has the orange and yellow type. We have the pinkish variety. Whatever makes them happy is what I want to put out there. And, if some hummingbirds join in the fun, all the better. 🙂

    • Thank you, Darlene. 😀 We had a nice visit, but had a hard time getting back home! I can laugh now, but it wasn’t so funny sitting on the interstate for nearly two hours.

  3. Such a gorgeous photograph! I used to grow both fennel and butterfly weed in Iowa. Seeing them made me nostalgic. I’m not sure if either will grow here. Maybe as annuals.

    • Thank you so much! Both the fennel and butterfly weed multiply each year. I’m so happy to see them filling in the space (and not having to replant every year).
