The beach - so much more than sand

I couldn't have asked for nicer weather, more beautiful sunrises, or gorgeous crashing waves.  We have just had a glorious week, Mr. Handsome and I.  Tanning, resting, swimming, and of course, a few pictures here and there.

My neighbor Michael (the retired botanist) is a treasure trove of fabulous information.  Like the first day we moved in and he came over and showed Paul the poison ivy.  God love him;  we sure do.  He also showed us the weeds that attract the monarch butterflies.  I will never pull this weed.

It brings these.  All over the beach!

The purple weeds draw the birds.  I am sure that they have a technical name, and that Michael would know it;  for now, let's just call them the purple weeds.

Even the beach grass looks lovely given the stunning backdrop.
