Here in Minnesota, mid-September is, sadly, often the time that Old Man Winter decides to wake up and kick us all in the groin. But not this year, at least so far. The days have been gloriously pleasant lately, and today was no exception. I spotted this Painted Lady frolicking among some colorful Zinnias as if summer was going to continue on forever.
(Not to burst your bubble there, cute lil' butterfly, but the Home Depot already has snow shovels on sale at the front of the store.)
