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~

Tulips Add a Touch of Colour to an Ordinary Cowbird~

It is truly one of the things that I just get so happy about come spring time...Tulips, such gloriously beautiful and with such gorgeous versatility in colouration and variety. Do they not just seem to be saying a cheerful hello with a nod and a wink...


Brown Headed Cowbirds...hmmm, they are quite lovely to look at, they seem friendly enough, and yet I must always wonder which species got robbed and had to raise their young as well as their own. I saw this male and his mate near an American Robin's nest several times. The female was not as friendly as the male, or maybe she was preoccupied laying eggs in other songbirds nests~

  2. Cowbird's get a bad press for sure Mary but I guess it's one of natures way to allow a species to prosper - just a little unusual. Have a great weekend by the way!
