Taking a deep breath and enjoying a meditative moment this afternoon. The task list today is overloaded, but the joy of seeing a butterfly in the garden on such a chilly day caused me to take a needed pause and appreciate the beauty around me. October light is elusive. It illuminates differently. It captures the edges of plants a little differently and changes my perspective. I took a walk around the garden this afternoon with my camera. I can hear a different sound in the trees as the leaves dry out and fall. But the blessings of squirrels, birds, blossoms and chipmunks are still around. Just taking a moment to share these little garden shots. I was so happy to see butterflies visiting briefly.
