Little Things and Happy Wishes

"Little drops of water, little grains of sand, make a mighty ocean and a pleasant land.

 So the little moments, humble though they may be, make the mighty ages of eternity.

So our little errors lead the soul away, from the paths of virtue into sin to stray.

Little deeds of kindness, little words of love, make our earth an Eden, like the heaven above,"

by, Julia Abigail Fletcher Carney

Whispers of Flutterby Nostalgia

These hot humid August days are hovering around 90 degrees..

so early mornings are the best part of my summer dazes :)

Mid to late afternoon as thunder clouds start to roll in..

kaboom - kabooom.. is heard..

waterfalls from the heavens.. our lawn n gardens thrive.

oh, Happy daze :)

I anticipate these summer days becoming but a daydream..

of beautiful flitting butterflies.. and the sweet smell of orange blossoms..

 wafting thru the air on a gentle summer breeze..

breathe.. sigh..

and these joy-filled memories are left to linger in our hearts n minds.

Be Happy :)

Good Old Summertime

"The easeful days, the dreamless nights;

The homey round of plain delight;

The calm, unambitioned mind,

The simple stuff of "summertime"
Aster Austin Dobson

have a joy-filled Sunday ;)

Miss Ruby-throated Hummingbird

Much to our delight..

this sweet little Miss spent several weeks

 savoring the nectar our garden flowers provided her.

Then one day..

much to our dismay.. she was gone.

Happiness is

New birds coming to the yard and feeders everyday.

male Painted Bunting

Two males have been seen together.

I call the males Rainbow and the females Lemon-Lime.

female Painted Bunting

Their colorful feathers sparkle in the sunshine.

We've spotted 3 females in the yard and at the feeders.

There's a new hawk in the neighborhood.

Sharp-shinned Hawk

I believe it to be a Sharp-shinned Hawk.

But it could be a Coopers Hawk.. what do you think?

female Cowbirds

This is the first year we have Cowbirds coming by the dozens.

2 female Cowbirds on the right and 3 male on the left.

I enjoy watch the birds rather than scare them away with my camera.

I hope everyone is surviving this crazy winter weather we're having.

Spring has arrived here in south Florida :)

 Our town is full to overflowing with people trying to escape the snow and ice.

time Marches on..  be Happy :)

We love and adore you.

Heavens Light

 shines brightly upon a lil' Beach Sunflower.

"There is a light that shines beyond all things on earth,

beyond us all,

beyond the heavens, beyond the highest heavens.

This is the light that shines in our hearts."

Meanwhile back at the Beach

Its been breezy and cooler than normal here in the land of sea and sand..

But one glimpse of the turquoise jewel warms me through and through..


As I stroll the beach with my new found feathered friend.

Life is good here in the sunshine state ...
