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~

Of Doves and Sipping Tea~

Last evening and this afternoon, I prepared my Mosaic Monday entry and even though I could view the images from my desktop, they could not be viewed from my laptop and I already had a message that another friend could not view them either.  I went ahead and deleted it and hope that this one shall work. 

The Mourning Dove was just resting in the snow on our picnic table outside the patio door, where I stood and sipped hot tea.  It was a few very peaceful moments and I took these images to remember them~








Another one beneath resting in the protection of a Honeysuckle bush outside the back window of the greatroom~










Happy Mosiac Monday, Happy Week~

  10. Hi there - have just returned from the wild, woolly and less that wonderful world of wireless only internet - so now I'm catching up!

    Really like the pink against the snow - and the bird in the bush is good as well.

  11. You seem to have a lot of snow Mary. I hope those Mourning Doves can find a little food beneath it all. Those doves are so much like our Collared Dove. Stay safe and warm in the cold and keep snapping.
