Butterfly Weed and Butterflies

The Butterfly weed has somehow become our signature flower. Soon they will be going to seed and this flower is one of the last that I found. Do you see the three tiny butterflies? Their stripped antennae are only visible to me enlarged. Beautiful.

Magnificent! I really, really love the top photo. If you click over to LouisianaBelleForever (in the blogs I follow), Belle has a photo blog. She entered a contest at PilgrimWoman (I think so called, or very close) and was honored for a photo. It's like the ultimate honor in blogland. I think you could also be honored.

I have a friend with gastro intestinal problems who can only drink goat's milk which, come to find out, is all the healthy rage. Do you have a dairy on the farm? (Just wondering; I'm not wild about any kind of milk.)

Goats milk has been a standby for many years, but mine are meat goats. They can be milked of course, but we only do when there are problems with kids.

I prefer my milk as cheese.
