A study in green

I have always enjoyed watching the birds, but I didn't always see what was right in front of me. Until a few years ago, I didn't even know that Green Herons existed. But exist, they do, and right down the road from me in a swamp that I rarely look at on my way to work.

 


















What other treasures have I overlooked?

So, where have I been?

A kind commenter asked where I went. Has it really been three years since I used this platform? I'm still here. I still marvel at the beauty of my little corner of Jefferson County, New York. I still try to capture that beauty with my camera. These days, though, the pictures live on my Facebook page, where I reach a wider audience. Where else have I been? Training at Sunset Tae Kwon Do. This crazy middle aged broad is now a Black Belt! Who could have imagined that? I have a few things to say about this adventure, and I will write about them soon. On this beautiful day, however, I am going to go out and putter in my weedy garden. See you soon! ~~ miniature rose ~~

A Study in Blue

To be able to watch a bluebird family grow and thrive on our property is a priceless gift!

Joy, unexpected

The trail beckoned us
To revel in the crimson and gold
And to bid the geese good luck as they prepare for their journey
Little did we know that there would still be monarchs
And painted ladies
Sharing their beauty as well.
