Enjoying my first cup of coffee while watching the flurry of activity at the bird feeders is a lovely way to start the day. I just about spilled said coffee scrambling for my camera when I spied this newcomer. My first robin sighting of the season sparked a bit of joy... Read more »
Storm three of the week was still going strong this morning. I spent a couple of hours on the sofa with my coffee contemplating the real world. Today was Hannah’s third snow day of the week. I had to decide if it was going to by my third snow day as well. All I... Read more »
After spying my first Goldfinch of the season, I treated myself to a new feeder and a ridiculously expensive bag of Nyjer seed. It appears the investment was worth it. I snapped this photo from the comfort of my living room sofa this... Read more »
This week at my folks house in Pennsylvania has given me a new audience of birds to photograph. Each morning, this Carolina Wren (a first for me) perched on a branch outside my window three stories up and serenaded me awake. I don’t ever recall hearing a louder... Read more »
Until the other day, I had never seen more than just a pair of goldfinches at my feeder. Last week a flock of these lovely little birds came to visit. Facebook friends helped to identify them as non-breeding goldfinches. I’m not certain if they’re males or... Read more »
I spied these goldfinches out the kitchen window this afternoon – the first I’ve seen this year. They were kind enough to stick around until I found my camera. A little sunshine on a rainy... Read more »

Moments of Peace
Before I turned on the radio this morning. Before I learned of the horror that occurred in Las Vegas. Before this Monday turned sad, I had these beautiful, peaceful, moments.
I love Fridays. They are my work from home day. I can wake without the alarm and roll out of bed to enjoy coffee at my desk. My routine involves a pattern of working and puttering, working and puttering. My puttering might be doing the dishes, laundry, taking Gidget for a walk, or like this […]
I stumbled across this picture Hannah snapped for me during one of our outings. The sign reads, “No Hunting or Trespassing.” Do you think those ducks can read?
Garden of Neglect
I always start the gardening season with such hope. This year, so many things interfered with my gardening motivation. I overextended on both the work and volunteer fronts. At the same time, I didn’t want to miss any of Hannah’s senior activities. Throw in multiple college visit trips and graduation, gardening has been the last […]
Pipers Under Pressure
The sun was shining when I left my house for the beach with Paul in tow. In the twenty minute drive (and one ice cream stop), the skies turned dark. A spot rainstorm followed us to the beach leaving it empty. I’d timed our visit a couple of hours after high tide in hopes of […]
Better in Black and White
A longtime friend photo challenged me on Facebook. The task was for seven days to share a black and white photo of your life. No people. No explanation. It was fun revisiting my pictures, testing which ones look good in black and white; many did not. Others are somehow better. It’s as if for some […]
