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~

I'm Trying to Get a Nap In Here~

While visiting with my father-in-law recently in St. Matthews, a Mourning Dove perched upon the fence in his back yard...right outside the kitchen window.  I took these images, as often I must, through glass.  The Mourning Dove seemd to just desire a nap, and then in flew an American Robin...  Kind of like when my 3 daughters were younger and I had a really long day, things had gotten a little bit quiet and I curled up in a corner to take a little nap and without as much as a wink, the front door flew open and in they came with friends wanting milk and cookies.  I love the naps, but I really miss the children coming in and making noise.  Enjoy your day, your weekend~


  1. Super Robin shot Mary and sorry for only just catching up with you.


I love and enjoy each visitor to "Red Shouldered Hawks of Tingsgrove and Beyond." I truly appreciate those who have become followers to my blog and really am encouraged by the wonderful comments. I also enjoy leaving comments and would like to ask that you please make your blog word verification free! You still have top security settings and you still have control over the comments published. It would make it so much easier, if you would consider doing this. I switched several months ago and am thrilled with the results.
