I brought home a pod of butterfly weed seeds over two decades ago.
I got it while on a trip with my sister and one of our college friends.
I planted the seeds along this bank.
It has taken years for the plants to mature.
My dream was to see them covered in Monarchs.
Maybe some have come before while I was not watching.
This year most of my butterfly weed has finished blooming, except for this one plant.
The Monarch(s) came two days ago.
As I pulled up my driveway yesterday.
I saw my dream.
A lone Monarch on the one plant that was a late bloomer.
I ran for my camera.
After taking many photos, I stood and reveled in my good fortune.
The timing of the Butterfly weed still blooming, the Monarch visiting, my arriving home while it was there and getting my camera in time to capture it all.
Everything is a miracle.
