In Glenda's Garden
I was out watering the zinnias late yesterday afternoon and noticed that there were 4 or 5 monarch butterflies, a hummingbird and numerous bees buzzing around in the garden,
If it hadn't been 103 degrees, I'm sure I would have appreciated that idyllic scene even more. There is also a honeybee in the purple ruellia, which proliferates somewhat like bamboo.
Many of the monarchs pass through Texas on their way to winter over in Mexico, where they can be seen lounging on the beaches with tiny sombreros.
You see, the problem is not getting into Mexico, but getting back out, as the border will be heavily guarded by the nonmonarchistas who claim that these butterflies are taking work away from American butterflies.
But you and I know that all butterflies work hard in this country no matter where they come from and the real ones profiting are the corporations, whom no one really likes to talk about.
