“My favorite weather is bird-chirping weather.”
Yesterday was another spring-like day and the birds were singing their little hearts out.
Once again, a flicker was tapping out secret love messages to his beloved from our chimney top, while this lovely bird was checking out real estate upside down very high up in a very tall tree! I’m afraid this limb is far too alive for a home though!
Without my Samsung 21 x zoom, this picture would have been impossible!
Truly, bird-chirping weather makes the spirits lighter and the days more melodic.
While learning to crop, sharpen, and highlight, my intention was to focus on the story I want to tell with these pictures. In the end, I’m not sure these pictures actually tell a story at all, unless it’s to say “Bloom where you’re planted!”
While a whole bouquet of lilies is gorgeous (in my opinion), it is no prettier than one single bloom. When it comes right down to it, a bouquet of flowers is simply a bunch of single blooms all together in one holder.
So it is with people. We each stand alone beautifully on this planet of ours – yet joined with others in a common cause, we’re not only beautiful, we’re powerful!
So, what did I learn from this challenge? To pick my “blooms” (friends) carefully!
We took in this little stray kitty and loved her no-end as long as she lived. All of our many pets have been shelter pets. We are the ultimate pet “recyclers” who take in the cast-offs of others.
One day, when packing up boxes to take to shredding/recycling, one box was a little heavier than the others and this is why.
No way did she go anywhere but into my arms for some kitty purrs and ear scratches.
Shelter pets have blessed our lives in so many ways. Please consider adopting a shelter cat or dog and save a life. The rewards are huge – especially if you like doggie kisses, kitty purrs, and unconditional love.
