5. Wishing us all many yellow butterflies!

I too am acutely aware of the loss of once familiar species of birds and insects. I live in rural SW Colorado and have loved the Colorado mountains for 64 years now and counting. The loss of so much of our forests here in the Southern Rockies (and everywhere - yes, I know) is devastating. These days I go up into the San Juan Mountains and I can't help but cry. But I am pleased to report that a barn owl has taken up a residence in - where else? The hay barn across from my house. I also noticed two fat and sassy coyotes out playing amidst the bales of hay the other evening. I kid you not. They were jumping off and on the bales of hay as they ran across the recently cut hay fields. Run in beauty my trickster friends! Fly in beauty, oh Monarch butterflies! I have milkweed flowers in bloom for you this year. Walk in beauty, everyone - for as long as we possibly can!
