Welcome October!

Welcome October

my eyes look forward to drinking in the beauty of all of your colorful splendor…

Took a little drive north this weekend and came upon some hints of autumn color happening up there.  It won’t be long now until the leaves start changing down here in the city too.  I love the month of October here in Minnesota and all the rich, vibrant colors of autumn’s palette.  I’m truly grateful for eyes to see…

Wishing you beauty and inspiration today

Last Taste

 

On warm autumn days as the sun shines bright

it seems every blossom contains a bee

hungry for its last taste of summer’s nectar

Over the past several days the bees have been busy, busy, busy in the garden gobbling up all they can.  I can almost feel their urgency.  I’ve really enjoyed watching them and trying to capture photos of them with my phone.  Yes, little bees, we must enjoy the last of summer’s blossoms while we can, as there’s a frost advisory in effect for tonight…

I’ve still got peppers growing out there so I imagine I’ll be ‘buzzing’ around with a bit of urgency myself harvesting them tonight after work.  Buzz buzzzz…

Wishing you beauty and joy…

Thoughts on a Monday

 

Don’t let your dreams

get crowded out by weeds

Clear away the debris 

and set them free

I know my little rhyme is a bit on the cheesy side, but it’s what sprang to mind when I noticed my blue rock with the word Dream carved on it getting crowded by weeds in my garden…

I like to keep a more natural look to my garden, and actually allow some of what are considered to be ‘weeds’ grow in my garden.  But I have a few weeds crowding out my dreams in the garden of my life right now and I’m feeling like it might be time to do some weeding there.

Now, to figure out how to go about doing that…

Any ideas?  How do you ‘clear away the debris’?

 

Just some thoughts for you on a Monday…

Your Beauty

 

Your graceful beauty is a breath of fresh air

lightness and peace flutter into my heart

on the delicate wings of butterflies

Just some little butterfly friends I’ve come across here and there throughout this summer.  Hope you enjoyed them.  Their graceful beauty really is like a breath of fresh air to me.  🦋

 

 

May beauty and joy flutter into your day today…

Your Brave Light

Oppressive clouds hang low and heavy

but still your brave Light breaks through on the horizon

Casting the beautiful reflections of your endurance and fortitude 

Rays of love and a quiet hope glimmers upon the waters 

as a new day dawns

Keep shinning honey, I love you…

Be My Escape

Nestled within the center of your loving embrace

a shelter from the blazing sun

I kiss your beautiful face

 

You are my escape

Pretty in Pink

A joyful dance

Nature twirling in her frilly summer dress

pretty in pink
