Within the continual, almost daily upsetting and disturbing news reports about our upside down political situations, beginning with Washington, DC and spreading out from there, the beauties all around us help me keep hope alive....especially in the belief of the basic goodness of people of good will and, as seen here, in the awesome beauty of the natural world.....frankly, the world that is made up of other life than human beings!
Our weekend joys:

The monarchs are passing through.
The purple martin will be right behind in a few weeks.
