God knew what He was doing when He sent a gentle breeze and brought a lovely butterfly to set my heart at ease. The happiness of your friendship and the gentleness of your words have touched my life in special ways and now I feel assured. Thank you for your loyalty and for reading everyday. I only hope you find things to make a happy day.

An Early Morning Visitor
Here is the nature quide that I was writing about. Mine is falling apart from so much use. I think that it might be my favorite bird book.
If you were a kid sometime between 1955 and 1975, you likely remember the Golden Nature Guides. They were pocket-sized books filled with incredible drawings of animals, plants, rocks and minerals. The first one, Birds, was printed in 1949 and was illustrated by James Gordon Irving. I still have the bird book and the insect book.
The Blue Jay by Balisha
Such a pretty morning...the sun is shining bright..
The feeder hangs so full of seeds..I filled it just last night.
The little sparrows come to eat...they like the morning fare..
A bird sound comes from the woods to tell them to beware.
I'm watching them through window pane...they are a busy bunch..
The sound from woods behind the house...gives me my first hunch.
A chickadee and nuthatch soon join the lively crew..
The bird sound grows louder... now I wonder what they'll do.
