I spotted a beautiful butterfly enjoying my flowers a few days ago. My mom, who died in 2009 loved butterflies. I can't help but think "Angels Among Us" when I spot one and think of my mom.
The birds are enjoying the seeds on the dried sunflowers. The cardinal is my favorite and I have several that visit daily. My hummingbirds are still in full force. I have two feeders and they visit them both all day. I refresh their sugar water about every three days. They visit the zinnias and my other flowers as well.
I will hate to see the flowers go because that means summer is ending, hummingbirds will fly to wherever they go and I will have to wait until next year to plant again. The stems of the sunflowers will be cut down and the birds won't have a hiding place. The seasons change and time moves on.
Thankful for God's little creatures!
