The morning light was just right. The day touched my cheek with a soft breeze. I was in wonder of His beauty. He never ceases to prick my inner being with joy at what he's done.

Isn't God's creation just marvelous? He speaks to us through the flowers and the beauty he puts all around us. Even this delicate little bee is a wonder of his doing.

This is the rich flower bed from which I was shooting. Summer is gone, yet the fall flowers are like God's final blessing of his colorful imagination expressed to give us beauty. This spot is located in the small village of Gorenichi in central Ukraine where we attended a Harvest Day celebration on the 11th. I"ll post pictures of that later.

Yes, this is for real. That amazing butterfly let me get real close. I've learned to start snapping as I approach so I at least get something before they flit away, but this one let me keep coming. God's amazing workmanship.

Hola Coleen. Gorenichi, es un lugar ¡muy pintoresco! gracias por compartir ésto. Tampoco conozco ese tipo de flores, son lindas. Dios es bueno. ¡Glorias a Él! Un abrazo.

Good morning, Coleen, You are right I do love the flowers! How unusual! The heat here has just about taken away everything. It is supposed to be over 100 near here tomorrow! Oh, and yes I, too, love my header - that is the Grand Tetons and they are truly GRAND! We were blessed to go to Yellowstone and the Tetons again this summer. You have inspired me to post more photos from there. :) Have a blessed day!

Lovely flowers. It's cool how the pattern on the butterfly kinda makes it look like it has eyes on it's wing (I believe this is to scare predators away).
