Cherish is my favorite word, and I cherish the ability of turning the routine into a beautiful moment.
Nature creates in me, a spiritual and meditative time to bring peace, harmony and balance, into an otherwise ordinary day~

Enjoying the Rotting Fruit~

Next door to our home there is a lovely Crabapple tree that is loaded with fruit during the autumn season.  A little girl passed away over twenty years ago now, and the tree was planted in her honor.  I look upon it as the Lisa tree.  As the fruit begins to rot, that is when they come, American Robins, Tufted Titmouse, Cedar Waxwings, Black-capped Chickadees and even the Yellow-bellied Sapsucker came one day... and ate until it was full and then like the berries it was gone, although we have the pleasure of it's company all year round~


  1. You've caught that one alright, the Yellow-bellied Sapsucker, it would like to be there so I can photograph it, ah, I may get lucky!

  2. Le foto sono spettacolari in questa intimità.
    Buona giornata :)

  3. Those little apples are very popular Mary, full of nourishment. I guess you saw our crab apples are frozen solid for now but even when they thaw I wont get a lovely sap sucker like you did.
