The beauty of nature never grows old; that’s why I have been scrounging around in my archives for blog posts to feature in my rewind series. Each post I’ve selected features photos I’ve taken of the flowering blossoms found near my home. Even though I’ve previously shared theses photos I never grow tired of seeing them; if you are a nature lover I’m sure you would agree. Please enjoy this oldie but goodie!
In June, as many as a dozen species may burst their buds on a single day.
No man can heed all of these anniversaries; no man can ignore all of them.
A Boquet of Tulips
You will find more of these oldie but goodie blog posts under the garden category of my blog.
From time to time I resurrect or rewind some of my oldies but goodies. With spring just around the corner I thought it would be fun to revisit a post I first shared on May 17, 2013. This post is one of several filed under the category I call Gardening.
May 17, 2013
I was very remiss at cleaning out my gardens last fall; there’s plenty of debris just waiting for my attention. While working in my studio recently, I detected movement outside my window, in my peripheral vision. Being curious about the origin, I stopped what I was doing to investigate. Carefully I moved toward the window. As I got closer I could see a big fat robin. The robin was tugging at the leftovers of last year’s Black Eyed Susans.
I stood as still as I could; not wanting to scare the robin away. The bird paused for a moment then tugged once again at the decayed stems. His efforts eventually were successful. As he flew away I could see the new-found items nestled within his beak. The male robin returned numerous times to gather more items. Seeing this robin actively gathering stems and leaves reminded me that YES indeed spring is here! Yippee!
Take A Look
I took advantage of a rainy day recently to pause and take a few photos in my gardens. This is the fruit of my labors. Enjoy!
While this post certainly has nothing to do with quilting it does bring you a small taste of the environment that surrounds me. My home, garden and landscape bring me great joy. I hope you found today’s tour to be a pleasant one.
I’ve been a blogger since 2010. During that time I’ve maintained three different blogs. This one is my most recent. The blog has been in existence for darn near five years. The anniversary is just around the corner. Be watching for a celebration.
Five years go by really fast. During these five years I have entered a boatload of posts. Five Hundred to be exact. The sole purpose of today’s post is to merely celebrate that milestone. I wouldn’t have paid attention to the number if I hadn’t received this notice from WordPress. So here’s my low-key shout out to commemorate my accomplishment.
