You know the old saying, ” A watched pot never boils ?” The same saying applies to this flower.
I glance out my living room window everytime I pass it. I always watch for the birds who use the bird bath. Today all of the focus was on this one flower. I planted it years ago and this year it decided it was going to come back spontaneously. This morning, on that flower, there was a hummingbird and plethora of butterflies. So at 3pm I decided I would go sit next to it and wait to get a picture of a butterfly. And here is the final picture:
A dark pink flower with absolutely nothing on it but the sunshine. Not one butterfly came as I was sitting there waiting. I waited an hour and finally got too hot. Most Floridians don’t lounge in the sun at 3pm unless they are sunbathing next to some water source. OR hoping a butterfly will pass by a flower!
So the personal lesson for me could be many. I chose, “Sometimes the sunshine has to be enough.” And so it is.
