Shadows awaken as the last rays of the sun spill over the mountains and softly settle into the landscape. With only minutes left until the the cool blanket of night covers the forest all of the little bees waste no time in completing their tasks. I stand on the edge of the lawn and watch as the flowers sway with their tiny visitors. Behind me is the buzz of a hummingbird as she makes her way to the feeders. They say you should take your feeders down in September but I generally leave mine up until the jewelweed stops blooming. Jewelweed is a natural food source for the little hummingbirds and as long as they are blooming removing the extra food source only makes the hummingbirds have to work harder to build energy for their long flight. She doesn’t stay long. Just a few sips and she’s off again. The bees continue their work to build reserves for the coming winter and they don’t miss a single bloom. The Asters will bloom here well into December and even into early February if they grow near large rock to hold the heat of the sun. Time slips from our grasp the same as the evening dew flows from the pedals of our wildflowers. Like the little bees we have to make the most of each day.
Good night friends and be blessed throughout your days.
For those who have been following me on Facebook and know of the struggle content providers have to get circulation from big tech I’ve been recommending for people to adopt MeWe as a social media platform. One of the problems I’ve run into on MeWe is that people don’t know how to navigate the platform. So to help with that I’ve created a permanent page on my website as a basic Basic Beginner’s Guide To MeWe I’ve tried to anticipate all basic questions there and You can bookmark the page to have as a reference and if you have any questions or suggestions don’t hesitate to contact me. I do still have a day job and I help admin several pages on both platforms so replies might be a little slow but I will answer you.
We also have the Lloyd’s Lens Photography Discussion Group on MeWe that is set up as a fully functional community. There you’ll not only be able to see and connect with me but you can also make your own posts and interact with each other.
