Artist Date

We went on our second Artist Date this morning.
We went to a wild life area for a hike.
I wanted to see reflections in water.

I was distracted by butterflies.

It was too windy for very good reflections.
We will go another time.

I enjoy water fowl.
It has been too long since I had seen a Blue Heron.

I hope to visit wetlands this Autumn.
Our Artist Dates are on Thursdays at 10am.
It is a standing date we have with each other.

A Black Swallowtail emerged in the house last night.
This morning we hunted for her.
Finally I found her on the ceiling fixture.

It warmed up enough this afternoon to release her.
I love the butterflies.
I also love Artist Dates.
I am keeping a journal of our dates.

We are off on an adventure for a few days.
Maybe I will see some reflections.
I have packed the picnic basket.


  1. Dear Sherry,

    I see a heron most mornings. He comes to the pond to see if there is any food for breakfast. He is a young bird.

    How wonderful you could release the butterfly into the warm October sunshine. Bless the butterflies.

    Artist dates sound fun.....I know you will enjoy this time together.

    Have a good trip....I shall think of you often.

  2. You are having too much fun girl. Love the photos.
