My favorite flower of the day.
Believe me, it was hard to choose only one photo to share with you from my visit to the gardens today! I wish I had time to share more of my journey lately, but extra time is sparse.
Today I watered the plants, which is part of my volunteer position at the Botanical Gardens. Normally my son helps me water, but he’s visiting his Grandmother for a few days.
There is so much to see when I go that I get carried away. I start taking photos and find myself still there several hours later.
People browse around and I hear oohs and ahs over a plant they’ve never seen or one they particularly love. I enjoy the people and sometimes they ask me questions. I like it when I’m able to give an answer.
The colors and garden creatures capture my attention in a way nothing else is able to these days. Life isn’t easy as I write. I may be avoiding some of it by spending hours taking photos of flowers or simply admiring the amazing size of the Cosmos and Sunflowers.
I wonder if I’m having a love affair with Nature.
Back to the flower.
Normally, Cosmos would attract butterflies, but I only saw one today. It was passionately fluttering about as if it couldn’t decide where to stop. I think the place is heaven for them.
I did see many bees. While watering the Thyme and Sage hundreds surrounded me. I stayed calm and rather enjoyed them. I’m sure they were asking me why I was bothering them on a hot afternoon when they were busy –as bees 🙂
