Oh.. the life of a Butterfly

What a joy it was yesterday to be out in the garden among the butterflies on such a happy day of sunshine and merry winds- much was caught up with, as it had been left for quite a while!
While the bees were all business because there is so much to do putting away honey for the winter, the butterflies hadn’t a care in the world. I so enjoy pottering in the garden, where l have time to take in all that is good and leave the worries for later. I envy the butterflies who have nobody to look after but themselves, living on an occasional sip of nectar, they spend the livelong day flitting and drifting about in the golden air. How wondrous to see them up close, the scales on their wings - sculptured dust!



Now it is Monday morning and l have been up since the early hours, have visited the doctor and am getting packed up to take my sister and her children over the water to see our dad. It will be an emotional trip but I’ll take the kids to Burger King and we will do a light bit of 'girlie' shopping as well ~ which always helps.
The invitations are out now for the Baby Shower- no turning back! ☺
Daniel is spending the day getting organised and packing up for university- he will enjoy the quiet.

The photos were taken half an hour ago - overcast today as you can tell.
It is a little sad to see the end of summer come.
Bests all.

Horizon, your Front-door is a dream, very (british)scottish! Don't beat me now!
The garden looks also very well! I think, next year I must come and see it personally! :-))

Your flowers are still looking so lovely...we've been getting frost the last couple of mornings so I have to keep covering whatever flowers I have left to make them last a little longer! I've been busy catching up on all the posts I missed while I was away..I think it will take me a week! lol Hugs to you my friend!! xoxo

Your flowers look lovely even if it is an overcast day. I just don't have any left in my yard. I hate to see summer end also but my husband loves fall. It is nice to see him come alive with all the colors and has already been checking out Halloween decorations.

Have a good day.
Hugs,
Connie

You've got lots of beautiful flowers and plant in your garden for this time of year. Mines rather lacking and bare at the moment.

Your garden is beautiful! I love when it cools down and I can putter around more comfortably in the garden again. I love the butterflies, too. We have two large butterfly bushes just off the end of the porch that happily keep them coming!

your garden is so beautiful. I especially love your entryway...how inviting!
I want so badly to plant Japanese Anemone! I have a friend who will give me some, and must get over to visit her. She's an elderly lady and such a lovely person. Must plan that visit...!
