We've had glorious fall weather this week. Monarchs and other butterflies are mobbing nectar-producing plants.
Unfortunately, I've been inside (mostly) nursing my gardening companion (aka my husband) who's been quite sick with what's probably H1N1 flu. I haven't felt so great myself, but so far my symptoms are mild.
A joy, however, is to sit out in our white chairs and watch the butterflies, listen to the birds, and enjoy the last visits of the migrating ruby-throated hummingbirds coming through.
The views from our windows continue to be lovely.
A solace to be sure, when we're not up to being out there in the garden.
