Wildflowers and a Monarch

Monarchs are late Summer to me.   My Mother would take me out into the milkweed fields to find caterpillars and we would bring them home and keep them in our kitchen until one day they became butterflies.  We’d feed them sugar water until they were strong and then let them go.   Each butterfly flitting away on the wind was like a dream let out into the world – a wish on orange gossamer wings.
