  1. Wow, Carol your photos are such amazing close ups! Your video of the emerging monarch butterfly is fabulous! You reminded me when our youngest daughter and I watched a monarch emerge from its chrysalis. Thank you for sharing and for your inspiration!

    Thank you for your New Year Poetry Swap! I love beautiful fall photo with all the colors and details, and your new year Poem! I especially resonate with “Create with Peace”, because most of my poetry and process makes feel peaceful. Happy New Year of the Water Rabbit.
