Thankful for Blooms and Butterflies in November

Today my inspiration comes from nature and the outdoors.

 

 

It's a bit of a cloudy day today - in fact, we are supposed to get a rainy Thanksgiving Day.  The clouds are keeping it nice and mild though. 

I took a quick break from working and stepped outside for a some fresh air when I noticed that some of the flowers are still blooming away.

Just then, a butterfly came sailing along, visiting one bloom after another in search of some sweet nectar. 

I watched him for a while before returning to my daytime routine, thankful for the pleasant interruption and for blooms and butterflies in November!

How sweeet to see blooms and butterflies this time of the year. The weather here has been sunny and temps in the 50s.  Hopefully, it will be just as nice for Thanksgiving Day.

Hi Siliva- as far as I'm concerned, butterflies and/or blooms can break up my day anytime they wish. We all need these beautiful gifts from God to give us a mental break.

My butterfly population is down in my yard, but I still have blooms - Roses, and Marigolds.

Silvia, you are so lucky to still have blooms.   We have no leaves or blooms now with a few freezing storms.   Love your bloom with the butterfly.   Happy Thanksgiving.

William Feela I'm sure you are! Where we live in Florida, we hardly have a problem with mosquitos, the light breeze coming from the water keeps them away. 

Yolanda Cordova-Gilbert thank you, I'm glad you enjoyed it!

Joan Cox pretty soon, you may see ice flowers on the windows! On the other hand, our modern windows are too insulated for that to occur. Enjoy your Thanksgiving as well!

Joe Pryor that is the truth and very eloquently expressed! Thank you!
