Contrast


This old Mother Nature always gets it right. While we spend our energies and our focus on pointing out how we are so different, she shows us how beautiful we are when we come together, when we help each other, and when we share.


I truly wish we could all be this way and be willing to compromise just a little in life.  Try to understand why your enemy is so adamant in his ignorance.  Try to understand how Pretty Patty is so much an airhead, but she does smell nice.  This stinky garlic blossom is so lovely next to this swallowtail butterfly.  They have worked it out.  Why can't we?




Here are two nectar suckers sharing the same Echinacea blossom.  There is enough for all.  Really, there is, we just have to be a bit more frugal.









Share something with someone today.

I was just up in Echinacea country ... or at least where those flowers were growing: Maryland, although I'm not sure how far and where they grow.

I love the Jimmy Stewart line in a movie I heard: You don't need to do anything. You just need to 'be.' Lovely photos...

What gorgeous pictures, and words to go with them, Tabor. Congratulations on the post of the week mention over at Hilary's blog.

There is something about butterflies. We've had a great year for the swallowtails here and it is impossible not to smile when a butterfly goes fluttering past. It's easy to believe that many a beautiful thing can happen on a day when you see a butterfly. Seeing several of them made for an extra treat :-)
