Six Word Saturday

Life in Colour: kaleidoscope

When we lived in Illinois, there was a butterfly bush right outside our large living room window. I enjoyed seeing butterflies, hummingbird moths, bees, and other critters up close and personal and of course, taking photos through the window. 🙂

Life in Colour: kaleidoscope

for Six-Word Saturday and Life in Colour: gold

As odd as most people think it is, I miss winter or cool air, so one Saturday we drove down to Tucson and then up The Catalina Highway or Sky Island Scenic Byway, rising almost 9,100′ and through six types of vegetation. At the top, it felt alpine and we spotted bright yellow and red leaves and aspen trees as well. In addition to the leaf colors, the parking area was temporary home to this colorful beauty. The scenery on the one paved road up and back is spectacular!

For “blue”, let’s hope from the mountains of Arizona to Wyoming’s Big Horn Mountains. From what I’ve read online, I believe this is a butterfly rather than a moth but either way, its color sets off the blue of the flowers.

“Blue thou art, intensely blue; Flower, whence came thy dazzling hue?” – James Montgomery

Descanso Gardens has the perfect plant background to show off a giant swallowtail butterfly. The sun cooperated to light it up!

for Squares: bright

The only thing that could make a flower better is…a beautiful guest

And of course, the fact that tomorrow is Saturday is also good.  Have a marvel-filled weekend!

Just because…

…I really am going to the Chicago Institute of Art today, so no Photo Challenge.
…I can’t wait to see the butterflies again.
…I love the colors and I’m color hungry after winter.
…I just like the photo.  Hope you do, too.  I’m off into “the city” today, downtown Chicago, on a day that’s supposed to be warm and sunny.  I’m packing my camera as well as my phone and Kindle, so who knows what you may see in upcoming days?

Happy Friday!
