Magic in the air

Each day the butterflies are in the gardens is a blessed day.
We have had a few light frosts.

The marigolds have been outstanding this year.
They are my marigolds....seed to seed for many, many years.
I once again took my yoga to the deck.

Once again I took my meditation outdoors.
I wanted to be with the butterflies and birds.

The colors mix with the scent of wood fires.
I am reminded of long ago bonfires.
I can hear laughter in the Northern wind.
I am filled with October's magic.

Butterfly Meditation

The water in the bird baths was frozen this morning.

We had covered the flowers and squash last night.

I am so happy we did.

When it warmed to 60 degrees this afternoon
I brought Black Swallowtail to the deck.
We said our goodbyes.
I sat quietly and watched the butterflies.

Prairie Walk

We walked on a section of restored Tall Grass Prairie

that is close to our house.

We walked for a couple of hours.

I have decided to take long walks on Fridays as long as
the weather allows.

I want to see the butterflies in the wild.

I want to see the wildflowers.

I want to see the colors
and the seed pods.

I want to be part of Autumn on the Prairie.

It is very dry.

Today we had clouds but no rain.

I love the way white flowers are part of October
on the Tall Grass Prairie.
I am learning how to add white to my October decorating.

The colors of October are in the trees, the grasses,
the butterflies
and grasshoppers.

Leaves are beginning to fall.
The wind was a fresh breeze.
I felt so good walking
on the Tall Grass Prairie.
