Tuesday was filled with commitments—golf, medical appointments, pickleball, and summer trip planning—so, it seems like we’re back to normal with a busy lifestyle; it was great having Kay back home again.
An even busier day ensued on Wednesday—dentist for Kay, pickleball with the Hot Springs Village Paddle Wheelers, and a Pilot maintenance visit to the Honda dealership. I did make time to visit the Middle Fork Barrens Natural Area where a number of flowers were blooming and a few butterflies flitting about. A small area of blooming Bee Balm was found—a bit early in the year—a sign that the appearance of the majestic Diana Fritillary butterfly was not many weeks away.
A few fungi were found growing in the damp, shadowy areas.
And, of course, butterflies.
