Abandoned Nest

And abandoned bird’s nest I found while on our last walk about on the farm. It’s very sturdily built, so I hope birds come back someday, through the moss might (or might not) suggest otherwise.


Baby Bird


This little baby bird was found today outside of it’s nest in our back yard

Huddled on the ground
Until I find the courage
To get up and fly.

You did not see me 

Hiding in the water there,

But I can see you.

My son calls this little guy Calm, because he can sit by the pond and talk to him.  Calm does not like me, so this is as close as I get… with the zoom on my camera.  

Morning Glory

Sunshine peeking through the clouds

This was my view this morning, around 7 am.  Like the light of heaven shining down on the earth below the clouds. 

Have a happy and blessed Monday!  



Autumn, crisp fresh air
Falling leaves, drying corn stalks
Buzzing chain saws, Fall

What does this season mean to you?

Growing up on the farm, it was a time of final harvests.  Corn for the cows and for us, fire wood to keep us warm through the winter, squash and pumpkins from the garden.  It was air made crisper some how by the falling leaves and sweet with the smell of fresh cut fire wood.

This week, I’ve been helping my father cut fire wood and it’s brought back all of those memories.

What are yours?
