Feathers On Friday: Gentle Neighbours

On our morning walk, Muriel Muscovy approached me with that “Do you have any treats for me?” look on her face. Sad to say, all I had in my pocket was a tissue.

I invited her to come join the ducks under my bird feeder, where there are always lots of  seeds scattered in the grass.

She might even meet Mr Blue Jay who is also a frequent visitor, The more the merrier.

Wishing you all a lovely weekend, as peaceful as the wildlife in my backyard.

 

It’s A beautiful Day In The Neighbourhood.

“If you truly love Nature, you will find beauty everywhere.” ~ Vincent Van Gogh

Every morning, hubby and I go for a three mile walk around our community. We are so blessed with the weather here in Florida and as long as we get out whilst it’s still quite cool, it’s really pleasant. We see a few walkers  and cyclists on our route and always smile and wave, occasionally exchanging a few encouraging words, from the required distance of course. Whilst it’s good to see some of our human neighbours, the beauty of nature is the best thing about our walks.

This lovely garden has a beautiful and fragrant Frangipani in bloom.

Danny and Daisy weren’t taking any chances and crossed the road to maintain social distancing.

Robbie rabbit turned his back on me, just in case.

Sammy  was also not in the mood for socialising.

The Great Egret just ignored me as he snootily strutted his stuff.

Almost home and time for breakfast, as we passed this lovely Angel Trumpet vine.

I so look forward to our daily walks. As John Muir noted, “In every walk with nature, one receives far more than he seeks.”  Wishing you all a peaceful and safe weekend.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Feathers On Friday: Nothing Goes To Waste

Danny and Daisy stopped by for a quick snack. They’ve obviously heard of our ‘Birdie Bistro’ and are happy that the smaller birds are such messy eaters, frequently knocking seeds out of the feeder onto the grass.

After eating their fill, they were soon off on their Friday meander around the neighbourhood.

Wishing you all plain sailing this weekend; calm and peaceful like Danny and Daisy.
