Balancing act....................

This week...........................

 .....................has been a balancing act.

Lots to accomplish before leaving next Tuesday.

A little time spent pruning and tidying up 
in the garden...................

..............and time to watch a sudden influx of 
beautiful butterflies enjoying nectar from the end of 
Summer butterfly bush and roses.

Sorting through.........organizing.........decision making.........and just hanging on. 


  1. Hello Mary:
    What absolutely superb images. Sometimes it is rather good to have moments to reflect, to allow for the passage of time without due care, and to while away the hours in peaceful and undemanding pursuits.

    Additionally, before going off on one's travels it is always satisfying to put one's house in order, so to speak, as far as that is possible and to prepare mentally for what lies ahead. We do so very much hope that you will wish to post on your travels upon your return. We wish you a safe and pleasant journey.

  2. Hi Mary, I see that you are preparing for another adventure. Your photos are beautiful. I have noticed a lot of butterflies around too. I wish you a safe and fantastic trip and look forward to hearing of your adventures. Blessings and hugs, Pamela

  3. Mary, Your photographs are absolutely lovely. The butterflies are wonderful. I am always one to have everything clean and tidy before leaving. I am so looking forward to reading about your latest adventure when you return. Enjoy and be safe. Bonnie

  4. I'll gladly trade places with you between now and Tuesday dear friend.

  5. Wonderful snapshots, Mary. They beautifully illustrate your words. I hope that you are indeed hanging on these days and that soon you'll be flying off in utter abandon. Meanwhile, before traveling there is much to occupy the body and mind.

    Take care.

  6. Your photos are all so beautiful. It seems we are thinking alike this week as I have been taking lots of butterfly pictures too and plan to work them into a post soon.
    I can imagine you are very busy trying to get everything ready for your upcoming trip. Good luck with all of it and have a fabulous time and safe travels.

  7. Beautiful butterflies!
    Hang on and Tuesday will be here before you know it. Then you can sit on that plane and say "Ahhhhhhh", take a deep breath and enjoy.

  8. Stunning photos! So many beautiful butterflies about these days...and I haven't captured (on film) a single one! I'm just enjoying everyone else's shots!

  9. Amazing shots of these gorgeous visitors. ;-)
