Red Collared Guest

Comments Off

This red collared emerald green jewel with cellophane wings whirred like a ceiling fan with 1260 heartbeats per minute untiring in a bobbing flutter, up, down, back and forth in the light spring breeze perfumed in lilac. With a magical grace hovered suspended in time at the feeder, its long tongue thirst for sun kissed sugared water thirteen licks per second.

Have you seen spring?

A gray windy April day, the goldfinches and red winged blackbirds have migrated back to the feeders swooping up and down like kites flying on the wind.  From out under the clusters of dirty snow, patches of thick brown mud and dead winter grass peppered across the yard. Still neither, blue sky or warm sunshine to nurture blooms of purple crocuses and yellow daffodils, they are buried beneath snow as I am cocooned in the confines of these four walls.

When Labor Day Ends Autumn Bathes

Comments Off

Labor Day ends as do our summer guest, leaving their presence in the dust of departure and cottages dark in the night. Autumn light now bathes in peace and solitude. Only song played, are agile little squirrels crunching through fallen dry leaves feeding on nut and seed.

summer gold

Late spring early summer, I had been out in the yard gathering weeds and loose brush into a wheelbarrow. I being too lazy to walk up the road and dump it out into a wooded area it has since that day set overflowing under the burning summer sun, humidity, rain, and a lot of it. Shortly there after, it began to sprout an emerald green carpet of cultivated greenery, a thick stalk sprung out the center.  Today, a wealth of golden Sunflower blooms on that one stalk.

Apparently, the birds at our feeder have a noticeably greener thumb then I do!

Now moved to its new area in the yard until the fall. Nature sure can gift with a surprise at times leaving us with a smile!

Happy summer and be well!
