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~

Fluff Drying Feathers and Peach Tree Blossoms ~

My 8 year old grandson is here with me today, as he is feeling a bit under the weather.  He has been observing how I work the photograph program from loading to edits, as well as placing watermarks on the images.  He also helped me select the series of images to use in this post.  So, a big thank you to Thomas.

The female Towhee had just finished taking a bath in the creek and was fluff drying her feathers.  The Peach Tree grove is near a lovely little seasonal orchard that sells fresh produce, honey, jams and other assorted goodies.  Thomas and the other 3 grandsons, as well as our 3 daughters when they were growing up, have also selected their Holloween pumpkins from this same orchard~


  1. Blooms and spring birds - both are still dreams of mine.

  2. What wonderful shots - lovely birds and blossoms and a cute boy...
