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~

Doves Surviving the Cold Blast of Winter~

We are having a bit of warmer weather, but it was only  a few days ago that we had snow and temperatures that were freezing, creating ice covered creeks and ponds.  These doves were in various places of the yard and while very cold, they were seemingly content in their world~


  1. Hello, Mary! We do love the doves, but they are yet to be seen around here. Likely I will hear one some morning before I see them. I hope you are having a wonderful week.

  2. They are very adaptive birds.
    Great photographs Mary.

  3. hope the warmer weather sticks for you guys! Love the dove, the first and last photos are my favs :)

  4. Great pictures of the Mourning doves. The Eurasian collared doves have started replacing our Mourning doves here. They are more noisey and poopy than the Mournings.

    Great post.

  5. Such beautiful images!
    These doves used to come and sit on the railing of our wooden deck back in DC. I strew birdseeds there, they seemed to like them. I love their warm soft color.
