Seedheads and Sunshine

A few straggling seeds still holding on after Storm Arwen. They look like they have been hand-painted by woodland folk!

The seedheads still offer a refuge for insects, but there is little left in the way of food for birds.

Fading glory.

About to face the wrath of Winter.

Cabbage white butterfly

The bane of gardeners. But, it has a cute little face, don’t you think? Lots of myths and superstitions surround white butterflies, many bringing good luck and others not. Native Americans thought they could induce hypnotic and pleasant dreams and some people believed they were angels watching over you.
