Life has kind of gotten out of control for me ...
So much to do; so little time.
I missed my daily walks --
time alone with my thoughts and the beauty of the world around me.
So I started walking yesterday.
And found that summer is quietly slipping away, and autumn is just around the corner. The beautiful and delicate flowers of early summer are now gone.
Yet even with most of the flowers gone to seed, I found a beauty in what was left.
Here, a thistle flower casts its seeds to be blown by the wind to a new home.
It's amazing how nature just keeps throwing beauty our way.
When we take the time to pay attention.
