Butterflies and bees,
Feeding on flowers —
As I write this there are eight Painted Lady (Vanessa cardui) butterflies feeding on the tall verbena plants (Verbena bonariensis) in the garden border. It is a joy to watch them flit from one flower to another, as the plants sway in the gentle breeze. Even as I look down to focus on the book where I write, their shadows dance gracefully across the page.
Autumn is harvest time; the gathering in of summer’s bounty. Isn’t that what we should all be doing?
