Butterflies and flowers

It’s late July here in the Piedmont of North Carolina which means that the summer flowers and butterflies are out in abundance.  Red, green, purple, yellow, fushia, white.  The deep rich colors of flowers pull you in while the butterflies lazily floating from one flower to the other keeps you there.

Simply watching them can fill hours of time.  Pull up a stool.  Hoe the garden.  Weedeat around them.  Use any excuse to get outside and enjoy the beauty of nature in its summer prime.  Mindfulness at its best.
