For the love of the bloom

I love mums.
I think they are lovely.

They are not a good nectar choice for the butterflies,
yet I still love them. I love their bloom.
Just the flower for the sake of the flower.

I have read that the blooms are used for tea.
I shall dry some.
Perhaps I can justify growing them if they make good tea.
I like herb tea.

We had a quick thundershower again this morning.
A burst of rain that lasted maybe 20 minutes

We already had high humidity and heat.

Thank goodness the wind picked up.

The butterflies continue
to come into the gardens.

The asters are beginning to bloom.
They are a good Autumn food sourse.

New sunflowers continue to open.
One of my favorite meditations is sitting with a sunflower and watching the petals open.

We welcome Virgo today.
Happy Birthday to those born under her.

I have begun working in my Virgo journal.
I am learning about my relationship with the stars.

I am made from the stuff stars are made from.
I am a daughter of the stars.

I like mums,too. Mums have scent all its own, so I like it. Also a mum is the coat of arms of the Japan's Emperor.
Although it's still hot, Virgo has rolled as you say. So cool Autumn will come soon.
Your photos are beautiful as usual.
Thank you for sharing lovely lives in your garden.

I am very happy when the Earth is treated kindly, but very sad when the humans don't obey Nature's rules.

Dear Sherry,

Mums are a favourite of my fathers.
Each year he buys them....he likes the strong colours the blooms offer.
Sometimes it is good to just enjoy flowers that we like......

Poppi is a virgo.......sweet child.....she is a child of the earth.
