Beauty




Although our summer garden didn't provide a harvest bounty, it did prove well for flowers. Sunflowers are my favorite flower and to actually grow my own gave me an amazing sense of pride. Next year, the giants will be planted around the perimeter of the yard. An incredibly simple pleasure of this spring and summer has been the watering of the butterfly garden with Ginger and Ella keeping me company. It's magical to have butterflies and hummingbirds flittering by. They've served as a much needed reminder of finding the beauty that is so close by and within reach.

Beauty is everywhere, if you should care to look for it.

But not everybody has butterflies... :-)

What is that orange flower? Its really pretty but I'm not familiar with it. I planted sunflowers too, in addition to the ones that volunteer in the garden every year. So cheerful.

I *think* the orange flower is a cosmos, but I'm not sure. The sunflowers I planted were dwarfs so they grew to about 4' tall. Next year will be the biggins!
