Paces of life…


Bee and Fly laboring on Dahlia. Copyright 2017 Pamela Breitberg

Watching others busying themselves is my amusement lately while I take time out from routines and duties to refresh myself. It has been too long since I have been able to stay still in one place, just be tranquil, with empty thoughts. This luxury of unfilled time will last only a brief while. Time is precious. I watch others do their routines such as this Bee and Fly on a summer Dahlia and I am grateful for the ordinary, underappreciated, normal paces of life. Soon I will rejoin the busyness and be productive again with a passion that comes from this immeasurable restorative respite.

Summertime activities…


One more fan of the Purple Coneflower is the Bumble Bee. This one is loaded with pollen already as it continues its collection.

A Grasshopper visits our window for a while. The only way I could get the camera to focus on this was to look upward to our soffits from the outside.

This Monarch Butterfly has been busy at the Purple Coneflower for the past five days.
