Judith these are very beautiful notecards with a butterfly theme. There aren't many around here either nor bees. Makes me worried why.
I adore butterflies; they remind me of my late mom. Your photos are gorgeous.
I wish my daughter were home this summer. She would love these. She's crazy about butterflies. I need to send her this link. Just lovely.
Isn't it amazing that every design is different on these gorgeous butterflies! Lovely photos for note cards! Sweet hugs!
Beautiful butterflies, ours are just starting to arrive
I miss them in my garden as well... I am also a fan of making note cards from the garden...yours are lovely! I'm hoping we'll see some butterflies when the zinnias are in full bloom!
I love this collection, beautiful butterflies!
Beautiful butterfly photography and note cards, Judith!
Fluttering flowers...what exquisite creatures and each with such beautiful design. Beautiful note cards!
beautiful notecards ... we did see a Monarch flitting around the milkweed a couple of days ago ... no photos though, but not for lack of trying :)
Beautiful butterflies, I love butterflies. They are rather spiritual, too. Visiting from Vee's. xo
Butterflies cheer up a garden, I like them to visit my place.Merle.....
Those photos made lovely notecards!
So lovely. I'm always so excited to capture a butterfly with my camera. These are beauties!
Not too many things in this world is as beautiful as a butterfly. I LOVE your note cards. :)
Lovely!We had a black swallowtail on our butterfly bush today! We love seeing them.Deanna
I never knew the rains keep the butterflies away! But come to think of it there has not been many lately. Your pictures of them are beautiful and would make beautiful note cards! Happy tea day to you!
Butterflies are amazing creatures. I'm sorry you aren't seeing many of them these days. They are fluttering around my buddleia bush everyday.Your images are beautiful, and I hope the rains give way to sunnier days soon.
So beautiful! I love butterflies almost as much as the lovely flowers they flutter around.
I've seen very few Butterflies also and no Hummingbirds yet this year.Cher Sunray Gardens
Oh my - love these butterfly shots! My favorite is the 3rd, as those wings look like a long, flowing dress!
Beautiful images! We have a butterfly pavillion nearby that we visit on occasion here. So glad you were able to find the Victoria issue! I was so pleased to come across it myself!
I terrific collection of your wonderful photographs! Now that you've mentioned it, I don't think I've seen a single butterfly this year in our yard.
Such beautiful photos! It's funny...we, too, have had a deluge of rain this summer, but we have oodles of butterflies on our bee balm. A mystery...
Judith these are so lovely. We went to Butterfly Gardens this Spring on Vancouver Island and they are so beautiful and fragile. I always think of my parents when I see a butterfly... take care.
Hi Judith, I did have my regular season of black and yellow butterflies and quite a few and until August/September - I think- we get a few monarchs but never a lot... probably we are too far east. I actually am not sure - I new to all of the gardening and seasonal bugs so I need to do some catch up research I guess. I purchased a garden diary, which I admit I have not yet written a single word in... I better get busy before we are blanketed once again in white! :DHugs and thank you for sharing the lovely notecards!Beth P
Oh wow. I just love bug wings and these are soooo beautiful. Perfect for note cards.
Judith, what beautiful photos and they make impressive notecards! Thanks for sharing their beauty.
Wonderful notecards! The Butterflies are gorgeous.
Butterflies are so pretty! We have had many butterflies this summer. We mostly see swallowtails.
It seems that your area of the country is getting more rain than usual and we're in a drought. Never a happy medium!I've seen a few butterflies here and there, but not the usual either. Seems they are dependent on favorable conditions!Your 'notecards' are a lovely reminder, tho. HugsJan
The variety of butterflies that you chose for the note cards are so beautiful! Smiles,Carol
I've been missing the butterflies this year. Your notecards show how beautiful they are in the garden.-Karen
Beautiful photos of the butterflies. We've had a swallowtail fluttering through the yard regularly, but no monarchs. I was unaware that lots of rain and lack of butterflies were connected. We usually get a lot of monarchs here, but I haven't seen one yet this year. Stay cool! Wendy :)
This year has been notable for the number of butterflies in Island gardens. Every day has been a bit of a show, and our guests from Europe have all been enthralled. The good years come and go, though, so we'll enjoy the beautiful creatures while we can.
The black and white is gorgeous! Now that you mention it, I have not seen one butterfly this year as yet. I do have a robin with 3 babies up on my downspout but no butterflies. And, tons of bees and such. Hugs. Tammy
Beautiful, beautiful, Judith! I'm so happy to see your photos on notecards. We have about the same number of butterflies, which isn't many. I need to plant more butterfly flowers but most need sun and with our shady lot, that becomes a challenge. :)Have a great weekend. G
How beautiful. Our butterfly bushes are just stating to bloom . Last year we had quite a few varieties of butterflies.
Good morning Judith.Love to see your beautiful photos of the butterflies. I enjoy seeing those different colors of butterflies from ones in my area!Tomoko
I really miss the butterflies. Even with the heat and lack of rain for a week we still saw none.
Wow! What fantastic photos, Judith! I am seeing a few butterflies but not near as many as I would like to see. After a wet spring, it's now very hot and dry. Send us some rain, ok?Hugs, Beth
Thanks for sharing these beautiful butterflies with us, as I haven't seen many yet this year either. Your photos are so lovely.
Oh how lovely! I've never managed to get a good photo of a butterfly so I'll just enjoy yours!
these photos are so exceptional!
